I agree with you Arlen. I have worked with three international
publishing houses. And with this new change ( I just saw this 75 year
info in my Intellectual Property Law book ), a federal attorney told us
that when this changes, legacy will be up for grabs. I have learned from
working as a tech writer/editor for those pub houses, that each General
Counsel, along with the Acquisitions Rep to the Clearinghouse, determine
each companies' guidelines. With the use of enterprise status, it may
make something okay for one, and sketchy for another. Just like you
said.
