Hi Valerie, Please read the webpage http://www.bookshare.org/about/legalInformation or better yet, tell the author to read it. If the author makes any noises of a threatening nature, please let me know immediately. Jim, the CEO, wrote a great letter explaining why and how everything we do is legal, so we are ready to respond to any authors who ask us to stop scanning their books, or remove their books, or threaten legal action. By the way, just to be clear, you volunteers who scan and proof books are NOT legally liable when you follow the procedures in the online manual. If anyone has questions, please ask!
