|Subject:||ADMIN: FASA <-> NERPS Copyright Problems Solved|
|Date:||Mon, 3 Oct 1994 16:07:01 -0500|
problems and concerns we have with regards to the mailing lists and the
NERPS project have been solved (yay!).
Tom has informed me that FASA will extend to one person (me) written
permission to operate the four HEARN mailing lists. That person needs to
act as Supreme Overlord of the NERPS books to make sure that the specific
rules of the license are met (ie, I approve JD Falk's copyright
information before it goes out on the net). That person will also be
given permission to offer printed, bound and signed copies of the NERPS
manuals in a non-profit manner.
If, for some reason, I lose my mind (or worse, net.access) who ever takes
over as Fearless Leader will have to get re-licensed for that person.
If, for some reason, the lists break apart from a central contact, each
person will have to work out details with FASA.
FASA has been very good about this dispite all the problems and
opportunities they had to say "piss off" :-)
They ain't no T$R, that's for sure.
I'll be sending them a letter later today or tomorrow along with copies of
the NERPS books. They in turn will keep my letter on file and smail me
back a letter of permission. This letter WILL be posted to the list in
order to keep the specific allowances of the license public domain, and
the FAQ will be modified to show the blessings of FASA.
If there are any other questions, feel free to ask.
OTHER IMPORTANT PARTS FROM THE CONVERSATION:
Tom sounds a lot younger than imagined.
Tom refused to tell me Doom's name. *grrrrr*
Why Seattle? When they gave me the address as in chicago, I asked why
they chose Seattle as the center of the SR universe. The answer was much
kooler than I expected. Seattle, for a large city, is virtually unknown,
but New York, Chicago, L.A., etc all have reputations. To choose one of
those cities woudl make it difficult for people to accept the kinds of
changes that SR puts forth. Kool thinking on their part.
