Mark Center phoned yesterday and during our conversation told me
that the University of Texas had refused his request to post
copies of the photos on his web site.  Now, just as in the Santilli
case, we are stuck on a question of copyright.  The U of T is
claiming copyright to the photos because they have the negatives.
If James Bond Johnson was in the military when he took the photos,
then the U of T does not own copyright to the images themselves.
They are free to copyright any book, video, etc., in which they
make use of them, but the unaltered images should be in public
