Diane, if you don't like the terms he was offering, THEN DON'T TAKE HIM UP

This is like any other publishing offer (or job offer, for that matter), if
you don't like it, don't take it. There is nothing wrong with demanding all
rights. There is also nothing wrong with refusing to participate.

I, for one, thought it was a fair trade. A chance at a $100 gift
certificate for all rights to a book review. And quite frankly, I don't
give a rat's ass what David does with my review, or what he does with the
money he gets for the clickthroughs. (Hopefully, though, he will be
environmentally conscious and recycle all of the letters in the review).

If I want to reuse the book review later, I will just rewrite it and avoid
any copyright hassles.

Who changes the channel rather than complaining to the station when a TV
show comes on that he does not like.
