RE: RE: How Many Trees? (WAS: URGENT: Immediate ethical issue)
Wow, Gene, maybe we need to consult a lawyer because that's a really strange way of looking at it - are not the results of independent research and their published expression the same as if I wrote the Great American Novel? - meaning, both would be MY copyrightable property?
The published expression (exact word-for-word text and the arrangement of text and images), yes. The facts---even the opinions, interpretations and conclusions---described in that published expression, no.
Not rocket science, just basic information available from the U.S. Copyright Office and many other places in books, articles, and on the Net.
The horse's mouth
Overviews of the application of the Fair Use statute to scholarly works.
Lots of copyright-related links
Been there. Done that. The lawyer took the T-shirt.
