re: Re: GSBN:copyright

Hi Joyce,

I'd check it with our publisher,.... if only I had one ;-)
If any of you have an example, it would be appreciated.

We  prefer to publish the book (to be) ourselves until it is mature enough to go hunting for a real publisher. And the French market might be too small for a publisher to be interested in publishing our SB book. 
The website is simply 'put on the web', by yours truly, and the publishing of our CDrom will be done by us too. I'd be really surprised if a publisher would sell our CDrom, including the copyright notice that allows anyone to copy and sell our CDrom.

I understand that having written permission would be the safest bet, but if possible I'd like to know the 'rules' of this game. What is allowed, and what is not. (I realize you might respond 'go to law school for 6 years')
