Apache License

Unfortunately, I’m not referring to a license allowing performances of the Apache dance whenever and wherever you want.

(Fast forward to 0:19 for your sanity’s sake.)

In the publishing industry, one minute step consists of fifteen technicalities that must be researched first. Example: the two fonts we’d like to use for Let Me Fall’s book cover have an Apache License. And I apparently need a law degree to determine if we’re allowed to use them.

I’m sure we’ll figure it out. It will just take a little time to sift through the contextual usage of myriad ambiguous phrases like contribution, object, and derivative works. I know I’ll get over my research vexation.

But probably not until I finish working on my copyright page.

I’m pretty sure the authors of these mind-numbingly toilsome works don’t make enough money. Or … maybe too much money.

Enough about that. What do you dread most off your to-do list?

    Lately? I’d say its wading through enough year-end paperwork to keep me warm by the fire for a week …should I decide to do to it what I’ve been fantasizing.

      Think you can get through it by tomorrow night? I hear it should be pretty cold … 🙂

    If you so require this paper to use a kindling for a backyard fire pit, I will now stop working on them and use them for what they are good at…. burning.

    I will, however, be required to name you when the IRS, SCDEW, SCDOR and USDOR come looking.
