Hi, Carrie, I think you've explained the policy very well. I think it's
weird and doesn't make sense. What do you think about this, fellow list
members? Regards, Kim.

Plays can be put into the collection if 1) they are out of copyright (like
Shakespeare), or 2) the publisher has given us written permission to put
their specified plays in. Random House gave us permission to put some of
their plays in, which we have done. Simon&Schuster has now given us
permission to put some of their plays in too. Wahoo! I believe that S&S will
be sending us their plays in digital format, so I'm hoping that the plays
will be in sooner rather than later.

The one zinger that sometimes confuses people is when a copyrighted book is
published that contains an out-of-copyright play and additional material
(like notes, translations, etc.) Because the entire book is either
copyrighted or not, the additional material makes the book copyrighted,
which means we can't put the book in. There are a lot of Shakespeare's plays
with the play on one page and its translation on the other. I'd love to put
those books in, but I can't, because the translation is copyrighted even
though the play isn't.

Hope this explains the policy! Carrie

Hi Carrie!!

Are plays acceptable on Bookshare now?  I wasn't aware of the change if
there is one.
