Re: Print-on-demand retrospective TOS book forthcoming

I am in the photography industry and for your information StarTrekhistory.com does NOT own the said pictures. The only person who owns any of the pictures are the original photographer. Period! StarTrekhistory.com has illegally altered and posted online pictures they have not gotten written permission from the photographer in the first place. So they have no legal claim. It happens that Gerald Guiran and StarTrekhistory.com acquired their pictures from the same source years ago (Lincoln Enterprises), who was illegally distributing those pictures. Restoration of a negative cannot and does not give you any rights whatsoever to that picture. Never will! I wish everyone would quit making an issue over something that is not the real content of the book. Cushman was a personal friend of Gene Roddenberry and has the endorsement of his son. What more does he need?
