Grace The reason I think this happens is that in doing bibliographies, looking at bookseller and library catalogs, and almost everywhere else, the publisher is what is cited. Hence, it becomes second-nature to imput the publisher in that field rather than the copyright holder. Having said that, this leads to the real problem: if the dcopyright database doesn't have the listing, one is left sort of hanging as (apparently) what the book itself says on the printed isn't good enough. then what else can be relied upon. Then let's question the validity of the book itself, etc. And if submitters and validators too often get dragged down in this technical pettiness, they will stop submitting/validating as they are spending more time wallowing in technical issues rather than the quality of the book itself. I know we are living in a legalist society, but that's not why submitters submit, validators validate, etc. They do it in the belief that they want to share the printed word and get it in the hands of more handicapped individuals, and continual roadblocks in this effort don't serve that end. As I said before, it is one thing to suggest that a form was incorrectly filled out, perhaps even something misscanned, but if, for example, my sighted wife says the copyright reads "simon and Schuster rather than the author (which also scans that way), why is that worth doubting. Sure, I can and do verify via the copyright office database (if the book is included), but many non mainstream publishers do not submit their entries there for whatever reason. Should these books not be a part of BookShare!! Should the submitters of these books be told that their submissions are unwelcome even though they are books sold in bookstores, found in libraries, etc? Sure, Gustavo has more work on his plate than he can handle, I feel for him on that! But BookShare should not make its problems mine or yours, and that is what it is attempting to do.
