Mike, Occasionally the validator can't find the true copyright holder in the book because the information is too close to something else in the scan. There are have been two occasions I can think of where the book was returned for copyright info and I found the correct info, different from what was put in the upload form, right under the page break and on the right-hand side of the page--and not on the copyright page itself. Whatever was being used to validate--daisy, BRF, whatever--didn't find it. It took a so-far-reasonbly good pair or eyes that reads every word on every page to find it. I wanted to see if that might be the case with Tom's book, but he's already solved the problem and uploaded the book again. I wish there were a way I could use my eyes and various sources to help get books off the administrator queue,m but apparently there isn't. Shannon, I'm almost through with Never Say Die. When I upload it it wll be with not only the explanation about the different names on the title pages and the copyright holder but also copies of two entries in the copyright site that show Gerritsen with both names. Hopefully that will be sufficient. Are you the scanner/submitter as well? Or do we only find out by continually checking the download list to seeif the book has been returned?
