I hold the copyright in my 2010 article on the history of sauropod research

August 15, 2016

Long time readers may remember the stupid contortions I had to go through in order to avoid giving the Geological Society copyright in my 2010 paper about the history of sauropod research, and how the Geol. Soc. nevertheless included a fraudulent claim of copyright ownership in the published version.

The way I left it back in 2010, my wife, Fiona, was the copyright holder. I should have fixed this a while back, but I now note for the record that she has this morning assigned copyright back to me:

From: Fiona Taylor <REDACTED>
To: Mike Taylor <mike@indexdata.com>
Date: 15 August 2016 at 11:03
Subject: Transfer

I, Fiona J. Taylor of Oakleigh Farm House, Crooked End, Ruardean, GL17 9XF, England, hereby transfer to you, Michael P. Taylor of Oakleigh Farm House, Crooked End, Ruardean, GL17 9XF, England, the copyright of your article “Sauropod dinosaur research: a historical review”. This email constitutes a legally binding transfer.

Sorry to post something so boring, after so long a gap (nearly a month!) Hopefully we’ll have some more interesting things to say — and some time to say them — soon!

    Mike,
    Just FYI, When I hit the link, my virus scan comes up with “This website contains a known threat and has been blocked”.

    Hi, Andrew. Which link do you mean? The only ones I see in this post are two to other articles on this site — I can’t see why any virus scanner, however broken, would block those pages but not this one.

    Man, British addresses are so quaint. :)

    (both the links work fine for me, btw, I think the problem’s with Andrew’s virus scan.)
