[bksvol-discuss] Re: boot camp for christians

Well, I guess I should have read one more post before
echoing Tracy. I did write to Gustavo asking about a
situation in which the contents of the book came
totally from two prior copyrighted works with
different copyright dates. I had no idea what to put
there, and he told me the latest, even though it was a
copyright of only half the book.

Mike, or whoever decides to try again, I'd just ask
Gustavo directly when he gets back, what to do or
where to look. I think it was Gustavo, or maybe even
you, Mike, who explained that a copyright does not
have to be registered with the LC to be valid. Or did
I misunderstand? If it's claimed by the author, that's
it.
