But seriously - I think you are definitely right. But I am also very serious in that I do not want to tread in the Dagorlad of the Elfing vs. Elfling-D wars. Maybe some people are immune for what goes on there, but I sure am not. I'd rather cherish the joy that I find in the elvish languages.
I feel like you. Instead of giving fuel to the copyright debat, I am convinced that a personal contact via e-mail is better. The e-mail addresses of both Hostetter and Gilson can be found on the last pages of every VT.
