trede: Concerns re: comics, flash, etc

Hi everyone. Just thought I should let everyone read this email from Mr. Edwards:


Dear Thomas

I was concerned to find a partial comic strip adaptation of my novel
Dragoncharm on your 'Loving Dragoncharm' website, here:

http://www.lovingdragoncharm.com/comics.html

I must remind you that no adaptations of my copyrighted work may be
published in any form, whether for profit or otherwise, without the express
permission of myself and HarperCollins. This includes, but is not restricted
to, comic strips, screenplays, Flash animation and written fiction.

I appreciate the comic strip in question has come from the fan community. I
therefore appreciate the spirit in which it has been created. Nevertheless,
copyright law applies. I trust you will remove these pages immediately.

Yours sincerely
Graham Edwards

*nods and noses* I do not know about Anne McCaffery's handling about copyrights, but then I have not kept to books that has large publicity. And the fan communities about those has existed in peace with both art and fan stories. Like Barbara Hambly, but then, she is a fan fiction arthour herself, kind of. She wrote StarWars stories up til she started constructing her own world.
