In this book a large amount of the content is compiled by the author, but is not the property of the author. So the author and Shoestring Publishing can only claim copyright on the writings of Ed Komarek. Anyone wishing to use material from these other authors need to contact these authors and seek permission, especially material that is under copyright protection. Shoestring Publishing and Ed Komarek have made a good faith attempt to find and seek permission to reprint material, especially information that does not fall under the fair use laws and is copyrighted by the authors.
The author does not seek, nor does he expect personal financial gain from this work, but only to recover costs of publication and distribution of the electronic and hard copy books. The compilation of so much material and evidence accumulated over decades, as well as the author’s limited resources, presents difficulties in regard to permissions and credit. People have died, have not replied to requests and some may have just fallen through the cracks.
The author feels very strongly that all this evidence should be organized and available to the public in the original writings, even though this format will most likely negate the possibly of getting a major publishing house interested in the book because of liability concerns. A complete rewrite would probably be necessary to get a major publisher interested if the author tries to go this route in the future, so the decision has been made to self-publish for now.
