Confusion about copyright
Bennett’s confusion over copyright
first: John Landon
This new comment about copyright by Mr. Bennett misses the point completely.
Scholarly quotations objected to on copyright creates a tense environment for discussion, and here must result in boycotting The Dramtic Universe save as critical commentary.
If the issue were plagiarism, misquotation, theft of text, etc, that would be one thing. But here the issue is simple commentary reference.
The comparison to World History and the Eonic Effect is absurd. The copyright is there, but the text was also online in all editions, a great sacrifice of sales that resulted in greatly increased readership.
But then I am not advocating more readers for DU: it is a dangerously confusing text.
