New Page for Copyright Information

By Pamela Jones

This is to let you know that I researched and researched and researched all day and evening, and I've collected all the information I could find on the copyright in a separate, permanent page, which you can access by clicking on the "Copyright Info" link to the left. I can't promise that it's complete for reasons I detail on the page itself, but it's a start.

I don't know if it's possible to get carpal tunnel in the shoulder, but that's what I feel like tonight, so I'll save everything else I learned today until the next time, except for one thing.

I learned today that Dan Ravicher, who is an attorney with Patterson, Belknap, Webb & Tyler [ ], and who wrote "Software Derivative Work: A Circuit Dependent Determination" which is available here [ ] as a pdf, is now pro bono counsel also for the FSF. I didn't know that, and I thought some of you coders out there might like to know.
