It is a wonderful thing when an author chooses to share his or her creative output in such an immediate and accessible format as the internet. To encourage authors to continue this practice, we will enforce these restrictions and protect their print and multi-media rights to the fullest extent we are able.
Please help us keep the net friendly to writers -- don't rip off their work. No point annoying someone willing to share in their creativity and lining the pockets of attorneys now is there?
If any of this is unclear in anyway, prior to use of these materials in any questionable fashion do contact us at copyright. A little pleasant communication in the present might avoid a lot of unpleasant actions in the future.
