I am in search of stories from scholars of their experiences with copyright -- good, happy stories that will inspire others; sad, sad tales; personal experiences with literary executors; struggles with multimedia projects -- the whole range. I am trying to get a sense of exactly what scholars are facing with regard to copyright. We all hear the stories of Hemingway and the other famous examples -- Gone with the Wind, Peter Pan. What about others? What about merely situations where copyright is uncertain and so one doesn't proceed with a project? If you come across this post, and know of people who have stories to tell, please pass along my email or blog address -- elizabeth at townsend dot net. You are also welcome to post them as a comment.
I will be gathering these stories at my blog at the Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society. For now, I am still using this blog.
