Collected Intermittens in print?
« on: July 29, 2012, 06:34:38 pm »
I don't know if this is even possible due to copyright issues, but is anyone, or has anyone considered, trying to get permission to offer the collected Intermittens in one volume through Lulu at cost? That's something I'd really dig having a bound volume of.

Yeah, there are how many issues? It would be a pretty solid book I think.

Ten. Pragmatically sorting the permissions would be hellish.
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

Of course just having all episodes in one volume would be great.

It wouldn't be that hard to go through and make a list of the contributors, and since most of them are active here or elsewhere on the web I don't think it would be too hard to ask permission. Maybe I'll put that on my list of things to do while I'm housebound after surgery.

Well anything you want me to pass on to the contributors in number 10, I can definately pass on.

Also I started developing a record of contributors on the BIP wiki, not sure how complete it was.

A good number of the cats who contributed to mine, #3, are no longer active here so that's going to be rough.

They've already given permission, provided that all we're discussing is a collected work to be obtainable at cost, and that we don't change the order of the articles or any of the content.

That's cool! My only concern is that someone might object because Lulu would be profiting from providing their printing service. I'm not sure if that could be construed as a copyright issue any more than paying Kinkos to run copies would, though.

If, legally and ethically speaking, putting the compilation on Lulu at cost would not violate any copyrights or the spirit of Intermittens in the eyes of the contributors, I would really like to do it. I'm willing to contact everyone and ask individually if necessary, but it would simplify matters if that's already covered under the distribution agreement.

On second thought, my concern is kind of silly, because Lulu is profiting from their service, not from the content.

Still, I'd rather ask, to avoid having someone angry because I didn't ask. So, I'll compile a contributor list and start asking.

I don't see that it changes anything that people have already agreed to.  The only difference is that you can now get a bound copy of the same thing.

And yeah, Lulu is making its profit on the printing, not on the intellectual property being printed, so I'm reasonably sure there's not an issue there.

Should I just go for it then? And put a disclaimer on the listing that it's being sold at cost?
