    So we're back to the lawyers again.

    LIked this thread better when it was about personal ethics and/or lack thereof.

    RED ALERT!
    Now THIS sounds like somebody trawling for evidence (or a smoking gun) that can be used (or planted) elsewhere.

    This has prompted me as a gigging musician to investigate who pays performance royalties to writers, when music is performed live. So it has done some good. We only play a few times a year, and I honestly had never thought of it. But people deserve to get paid for writing stuff.

    (Answer, by the way: the venue pays performance royalties by way of a royalties license with ASCAP and BMI who then pay the writers. Probably like .000001 cent, but still.)

    I've not seen lightning bugs since the early 70s perhaps, the last time I lived in a rural area.

    With the way I revisit my favorite DVDs, I see 100 FIREFLYs every 4-5 years.

    Hell's close, but not quite. Arizona. We usually have 100+F temps between May and October.

    I'm glad we found something else to talk about that isn't the content of the book.

    The CONTENT of the book is fantastic. In terms of text. I love Morgan Woodward's comment that his scene in sickbay was the hardest he ever worked, and his most emotional scene ever, and left him exhausted and drained. Afterward, his agent said "I didn't know you could do that!" And he said "Well now you do - get me work!"

    I spent 3 weeks out there, and I can say I believe you wholeheartedly about the heat.

    I just want to say I'm glad the TOS forum isn't filled up with annoying stickys, like TNG is....

    That's what happen when you use replicators too much, it's bad for the environment.

    (I had a pitch idea like that in 1990, because I SO wanted the 24th century to go back to having to carry what they need instead of having magic box tech, but couldn't come up with the requisite personal angle.)

    I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but the startrekhistory site appears to be guilty itself of using something without giving proper credit.

    In their section on deleted scenes, under "City on the Edge of Forever," the site presents an unused, never-aired music cue by Fred Steiner. They must have gotten it from La La Land's complete box set of Star Trek music.

    The La La Land CD producers jumped through incredible hoops to get all the many stakeholders involved to agree to the project. Then LLL worked for like a year, going through tape reels and studio paperwork to meticulously identify and document each bit of music. And they had to make digital transfers of all the tape reels and perform restoration work on the resulting audio files.

    Startrekhistory presents the "City" cue as if it was the site's own discovery. I don't see any credit or thanks given to La La Land Records or the individual producers.

    Are you sure that's where they got it? It could be true, but they could have also acquired it by other means.
