Hello Sue,

If you are concerned that the estate has somehow circumvented the Chafey 
amendment, let me assure you that is not possible by just inserting some 
boilerplate message on the copyright page. Chafey wouldn't be surving its 
purpose if this was possible. So long as it falls under the scope of Chafey, 
generalized as a nondramatic literary work and not on BookShare's very short 
list of items it won't accept, it is appropriate for the site. The only thing 
that comes to mind that BookShare has agreed not to accept are cracked eBooks 
and teacher editions of textbooks. And of course, books from places like NLS 
WebBraille and RFB&D.

  Hello all,

  I just released Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont by Elizabeth Taylor.  It is 
copyrighted by the Elizabeth Taylor Estates and, though it shows reprints and 
their dates, it very specifically states that all rights are reserved, and goes 
through all the methods of reproduction.  I may be wrong about its 
appropriateness for bookshare.org, and this is why I am releasing it rather 
than rejecting it.  There are two isbn numbers, as well as an introduction with 
a copyright date which is more recent than that for the book.

  Thank you.

  Sue S.
