      Helge Fauskanger writes of his "Quenya Course":


      > In private (and this includes private groups), people may record,
      > rewrite, rework and re-whatever my Quenya course to whatever extent
      > they find useful or just amusing, as long as they keep the results to

      This is a remarkable piece of hypocrisy, coming as it does from one who
      published Tolkien's Quenya translations of the Lord's Prayer and the
      Hail Mary, without the permission of the Tolkien Estate.

      Apparently, to Helge, copyright and even courtesy apply only to his own
      works....
