*** ORIGINAL MESSAGE

Dear Sir/madam

First of all congratulations on a very interesting collection of sausages recipes in your pdf file. I will forward some corrections/suggestions/improvements to you shortly. However, the reason that I am getting in touch with you at the moment is that this collection is often being sold on ebay by awchristler, who states that his Grandmother prepared the book some years ago and that all copyrights belong to him. I know this as I recently purchased a copy of it. He/she hasn't even taken out the spaces where it once said www. stuffers.com as if you run the cursor over these areas it still says stuffers. I will be writing to ebay also.


kind regards

Dear Parson,

The collection of recipes I began when the internet was quite young. I maintained an ftp site where people could download the recipes as required. A fellow by the name of Doug Morton assembled them all into an pdf file for me. Like you, I met him through the internet and I have since lost touch. I no longer maintain the recipes and I would not be able to make any changes because I don't have the software necessary. I am disappointed to here that this individual is selling these recipes for the were always intended to be freely available in the spirit of the early days of the internet. I did not copyright the material for these reasons.

I do appreciate you informing me of this individual and I will also complain to Ebay. Your company name sounds intriguing. Let me know if you have a website.

Best regards,
Bill
