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!

Hey folks,

I need help explaining to an author how Bookshare protects against overall 
piracy and why Chafee means no further permission or releases are necessary.
