because no one is paid for their articles, and everyone voluntarily
contributes, and all the articles are open forum already to members,
speaking strictly of Pomona, but this also applies for the list-serve, there
are no legal recourse for not having your comments and letters included. Do
not write them if you are concerned. As long as it is sold only within
members, there are no problems. The board which is the elected
representative body of the membership, their voted approval for the project
clears all legal barriers for a non-member database or a broader sale of
cds. The legal issues are thankfully not complicated if folks proceed within
the governing structure of NAFEX. If folks want to make private CD databases
of Pomona, that is fine, but the sales of such would be most likely illegal,
and the editing and formatting oversight of the official body of NAFEX would
reduce its value in the Public Domain. The real challenge is getting broad
support from the membership and from the board. Heron   On Wed Oct 27 11:19
