Many of these articles are law-related. The subjects range from Saudi legal matters to copyright, with a few book and movie reviews thrown in for good measure.
The story about James Joyce's flight from Nazi-occupied France and his refusal to accept a passport from a neutral country that would have permitted easy travel led to an interesting e-mail exchange with a relative of Joyce's wife Nora.
The articles warning of collateral consequences to the proposed Saudi Aramco IPO led to multiple insistent, stalking-like telephone calls from a Wall Street Journal reporter who was upset that I would not be a source for him. The articles speak for themselves. I wrote that he could feel free to quote from them with attribution, but that wasn't enough.
I wish I had the time to update all the articles. The Star Trek Axanar litigation was settled obviating a judicial pronouncement on whether a copyright oral license is valid (I believe it is). The Kerouac Estate's shenanigans (a Florida court found that the current Executor exercises powers under a fraudulent testament) will stay on the backburner because the Kerouac Estate wisely settled with the Casady Estate in the "Joan Anderson Letter" litigation.
The warning in the article "Parallel Lines" has fortunately not proven accurate. The current U.S. president answers not to history, but to himself. If he had a messianic streak, the world would be doomed.
