[Editor's Note: Dave Evett writes, "Hardy, you might want to allow this 
one more post, since it only directs attention to a couple of more than 
usually authoritative - and very much up-to-date - approaches to the 
issue." Okay, but this is the last post on this Subject. Members can 
always submit messages concerning aspects of previous discussions under 
a new Subject line for my consideration. -Hardy]

The N.B. column in the current TLS (22 Sept 06) is completely relevant 
to the topic of fair use and permissions; it instances Gordon Bowker's 
mistaken belief that his life of Lawrence Durrell could not include 
quotations from the work without permission from Durrell's notoriously 
defensive widow, and goes on to call attention to a report just issued 
by the British Academy recommending a fresh statutory approach to the 
problem: http://www.britac.ac.uk/reports/copyright/execsum.htm.

In the same issue there is a review of a new book by Susan Bielstein, 
*Permissions: a Survival Guide," which mainly concerns the visual arts 
but clearly includes much other material.
