In short, pay the surviving family members for the rights.
I agree with keeping the character of the original. The only 'corrections' I want to make are fix-ups of typos that CR might have made while entering the text. I've been guessing, trying to change as little as possible. It would be great to see a scan of the original to help with this task. I have pulled in all of the text I've seen so far.

As for making money off of it: the only people who are entitled to profit from this are the person who owns the diary and, with her permission, CR.

I have to say that, although it's a great story, the comments of ADV'ers here really add a lot of juice to it.

Why would you say that?

I'm an IP lawyer, and I'm not sure that it isn't protected. If it wasn't published prior to the 1976 Act, as modified by the 1989 accession to the Berne Convention, then it may well be protected.

It would make a great photo book, ya know; old and recent shots of the places mentioned in the diary, accompanied by the kid's words... I'd buy it.

How in the hell did this thread turn into a discussion about copyrights, royalties, and money?

It's a Ride Report, people. Enjoy it for what it is and stop looking for an angle to make a buck off of it.

Geez, some people.

That's okay. I don't even pretend to understand copyright law anymore, after all the dicking around over the last 20 years. That's why I said "may" be protected.

You know, I used to be real proud of myself when I could tighten and align my chain with the tool kit underneath my seat. Not so much anymore.

Great read!

Glad to hear it! I thought it was 68 pages; the more the better!

Great story - thanks for all the work posting it!

STFU and read the story ! The text as written adds character ! Why does it matter to you ? Go tighten the cup holder on your LT.

crooked roads,

Thank you for the time spent sharing this wonderful story with us !!!
