Re: Paramount forcing scanned FASA Trek material off Net (Pen&Paper)

I guess they think "fair use" doesn't apply any more.
How are full scans of all FASA books ever "fair use"?

"Fair use" would entail a scan of one page to accompany a review of a whole resource.

As for CBS Legal sending C&Ds, this would be in support of all current licensees, showing that their $$$ will be routinely protected, as well as the rights of the original FASA creators who may not want their old material being bandied around for free. Tightening up is often cyclic, since it's very expensive to do it constantly, so they'll do the odd blitz instead.
