A serious newsletter on the (mis)use of copyright law by the large and established against the small and marginal, particularly when the latter appropriate trademarks, song lyrics, etc. for the purpose of parody or social commentary. One of its articles, for instance, tells of Meridenth (BETTER HOMES & GARDENS) Corporation's suing a queerzine called BETTER HOMOS & GARDENS. It'd be nice if CVS Bulletin were able to influence somebody in the establishment, for our copyright laws are clearly both unfair and outmoded; it's not likely, though.--Bob Grumman
