Hi Tim, Robert, and Bob,

Actually, I believe there is a law. It says that anything you post to the
Internet is immediately copyrighted by you. And no one can take that
copyright away from you without your permission.

I think this includes posts to listservers as well as web pages, such as
the entertaining web site posted by Dr. Richmond. (BTW, I'm anxiously
awaiting the arrival of my Organic Rare Earth Healing treatments!)

Some listservers ask for you to give up your copyrights as a condition of
membership. However, Dr. Margraf has not made that a condition of Histonet.
Which means that anything you post to Histonet is immediately copyrighted
by you and you continue to own the copyright to the post in the archives.

However, it must be a vague area of law, as I don't understand how
"journalists" can quote any one they want, without permission. On many
occasions, I assume for an easier reading experience, they also don't want
to burden us with BOTH sides of the story... :<)

Sound words of wisdom.
