Yesterday I posted the link that Ed Sherry sent out on his mailing list which had some free ebooks listed. I posted it in the 'Oswald in Minsk' thread as it was just the day before in that thread when Peter L mentioned that Dr Titovets, Oswald's friend in the USSR, a now retired academic and only receiving a meagre Belorussian pension didn't have enough money to further explore the case. I thought it was providence that it arrived in so timely a fashion. The original link was from Robert Morrow so I assumed the books were of a lesser quality but we all have to be familiar with them too. However, John Kelin contacted me yesterday, a couple of hours after I posted, to let me know that he was one of the copyright holders of the books being distributed by Robert Morrow. I removed my post and another one with the same link innocently posted by another member. John has also contacted several of his friends who are the other copyright holders to notify them of the improper use of their work. John has also contacted Robert Morrow who apparently responded with some thing along the lines of "Go fuck yourself". Charming.

So, I don't want this forum to be used by Robert Morrow to upset genuine researchers and historians. Please don't post the link.

John Kelin has alerted me to the fact that the execrable Robert Morrow has illegally included George Michael Evica's And We are All Mortal in his book give-away scheme.

I have alerted Alycia Evica, the copyright holder, to this fact, and I am encouraging her to take immediate legal action against this egomaniacal thief.

Take the Evica book off-line immediately, Morrow, or your trust fund will be nothing more than a memory.

You have been warned.

Understand completely the issue of copyright...a complex on in the time of internet. Anyway, if any books on Dallas as ebooks are out of copyright or someone wants to purchase and send to Titovets, let me know. Unused copies of real books too he'd appreciate and likely put it the local library after reading. Personally, I dislike ebooks, unless I also have the real book....I like reading a real book, and can't abide reading more than a page of an ebook. The only advantage of an ebook is the ability to search for something in it...but then I usually pick up my real copy and read the passage, reference or whatever. I have a collection of ebooks, but I never have read a one. Must be old fashioned, but I love the feel of reading a REAL paper book.

It possibly had less to do with the act itself than the fact that it was Robert Morrow behind it all and his attitude when confronted about it.

Speaking for myself only, it has almost everything to do with the act itself, and not much to do with who did it. I would stop anyone who engaged in this activity. 99% v. 1% ... as it were.

Agreed, John.

Of course we want our work to engage the largest audience possible. We want our work to be universally available into the unforeseeable future. Yet each author must reserve the exclusive right to decide how these goals should be achieved -- if, that is, he and/or she shares these goals.

Yes, Morrow remains, in the discerning minds of many, a sex-obsessed, megalomaniacal simpleton. Or as Jim Fetzer would put it, a first-class JFK researcher. But such is hardly the point.

"
