Webster Resigns from SFWA Copyright Committee

Bud Webster reportedly has announced his resignation from the SFWA Copyright Committee effective June 30, citing his frustration with a lack of action and the complete lack of support by other writers’ groups.

The decision was announced on a listserv whose members occasionally notified him when they discovered copyright violations, because Webster wanted readers to be aware he would not thereafter bring violations to SFWA’s attention.

SFWA’s former “Electronic Piracy Committee,” although disbanded in the wake of last year’s Scribd controversy, was reinstated on terms recommended by an exploratory committee as the Copyright Committee in November 2007.
