Re-publication of MMD Articles
By Gerry Bay

I recently received my copy of the MBSI Journal and, as I leafed
through it, I was rather surprised to see my name in print as the
author of a one-column report on the Murphy auction!  The report was
identical to the report I posted in MMD.

I have no idea how this happened.  I thought my post was to my fellow
MMD'ers.  No one asked me if it would be okay to use it in the Journal.
(It would have been but I might have changed a few editorial comments!)

So, just a note to all of you that you should carefully think about
what you put in a post, since it is clear that your words could pop up
most anywhere.

 [ Editor's note:
 [ Your article, "Prices at Murphy Auction, Louisville KY", was
 [ published in Digest 980405.  I'm sorry that it was reprinted
 [ elsewhere without consent from you and MMD.  Jody will ask the
 [ MBSI Publications Committee about it.
 [ However, I hope this doesn't discourage our authors from writing.
 [ Any newsletter or bulletin is subject to plagiarism: it's a fact
 [ of life -- especially on the Internet -- and might be considered a
 [ compliment.  The US Copyright Laws exist to defend your works.
