Respectable authors, publishing houses, movie-, TV- and DVD-producers, recently Turner and Warner Brothers Inc. with their “Adventures of Errol Flynn,” have been respecting my copyright for 29 years now and have transferred royalties without being asked for.
I have always offered photos and data material to smaller publishing houses and private collectors for free as I am glad to see books, etc. published about Errol Flynn. These people have never challenged my rights and have always had the decency to name their source.
For example, only about two years ago I offered photos from my documentation (with a copyright annotation) to blog members via Ms. Inga Klein. The result was that gentlemen of the blog have spread copies of these photos on the internet. Last week, Ms. Klein made me aware of an entry with comments by a “Gentleman (?!)” Tim on the blog (which I have long not been visiting anymore).
This will be my first and last post for the blog now.
If a “serious” Flynn collector does not know my documentation – so be it. However, if he does not know the outstanding, scientific books by Tony Thomas, Thomas McNulty, or Robert Matzen, which include references and photos from my documentation, and if he has such a biased and hateful opinion of Dr. Erben, which reflects negatively on Errol Flynn’s friendship and respect of Dr. Erben, and if he thus shows such lack of expert knowledge – then his entry is not worth a direct answer from me.
I can only hope for the blog that it will, one day, receive new, factual, seriously researched material with scientific content from this Gentleman.
