Before consulting a lawyer, check out UMI's website (www.umi.com) and
the information they give about copyrights and royalties. I remember
seeing a notice that they pay royalties only when seven or more copies
are ordered in a year. I'm pretty sure this is their standard contract
that all of us agreed to when we gave them permission to distribute our
dissertations (if you never gave them permission, of course, that's a
different story). I don't think a lawyer can do anything about this. For
those of you very interested in the big scandal surrounding
Contentville, however, look at the  ongoing discussion at
www.slashdot.org

Please do keep us informed of the developments of such an interesting
problem.  It should certainly be an enlightening experience for anyone
trying to understand developments in intellectual property, and property
generally, in the Renaissance and later.
