Jim Penniston has a Facebook account, which I found through his participation (and yours) in the Justice For The Bentwaters 81st Security Police At Rendlesham Forest 1980 FB group. For some reason a FB search for James Penniston does not bring up this James Penniston, though you can get to his profile from posts in the Justice... group. I haven't run into that before. Penniston's FB account is set to private, so those who are not signed on as his 'friends' will not see any details, such as conversations on his Wall. I'm not sure how the newsfeeds apps work. Anything that is on a FB Wall that is not publicly visible should have a reasonable expectation of privacy, at least in theory. Netiquette and ethics would suggest that before quoting elsewhere, permission should be obtained from the participants (much like Errol's guidelines on this List). The writers own the rights to their words no matter what, and they are not public domain unless those copyrights are relinquished, or permissible under a stated Creative Commons agreement. Fair Use standards might apply to short excerpts that are publicly visible. Copyright issues regarding internet material may depend on which country the servers are located in. As with many issues, there are a lot of grey areas between the spirit of the law and the letter of the law. When in doubt, aim to be thoughtful and ethical in your cutting and pasting of online material. Carol Maltby Listen to 'Strange Days...
