25086Re: [mythsoc] I need a summary of the copyright issues relevant to the Ace editions
- Jan 31, 2014Wendell, "RealityChuck" contends that Tolkien had not previously been
published in the U.S. (and thus did not qualify for SFWA membership) --
but hadn't THE HOBBIT already been published in the US? So that whole
contention (which seems geared to heighten SFWA's importance in the
dealings) is invalid. And wouldn't there be some indication in Tolkien's
letters about the SFWA support? There isn't, that I recall -- just
mentions of his lawyers dealing with the copyright/edition snafu.
I haven't read the LETTERS recently, so do not claim expertise on it, just
