Claiming legal ingorance, I am posing a couple of questions:
    If we note information is from "Zelda Grimey at St Hysteria Hospital" does
this hold that hospital at large responsible for any negative experience
from another facility may encounter?
    Do we as contributors have to obtain permission from some administrative
source in our respective institutions for sharing our specific techniques or
technical expertise?

Years ago I recall the need to obtain a waiver from a hospital if they and
technique were identified in advertising.    You'll probably choose to include
general disclaimer that the information is provided as shared reference
rather than absolute recommendations.   I don't know where the line between the
freedom of speech and employment contract is drawn.   Hopefully, it is an issue
someone with this legal understanding can address.      And, fortunately, much
of the shared information is a matter of public domain.

To echo John Kierman, I, too, applaud your project and am assured of your
project's success.
All the best,

Thanks for your input to my question about reprinting replies. The reaction
is very mixed and to avoid offending anyone and avoid legal issues
(especially for our local Society) I will ask permission for any replies I
would like to use.

I intend to try this for the Georgia State Society for Histotechnology
newsletter. My intention is to reach those who don't have access to the
Histonet. I hadn't thought of doing any more that picking out the 'Best of
the Histonet' from a preceeding three month period and making a consise
article of interesting techniques or problem solving methods.

Thanks again for the great response!
