Thanks, Michael! This is great!

I think for fair use to apply, the material would need to be under
copyright. The IBS's nonprofit status has been revoked due to failure to
file, in which case its assets are supposed to be transferred to another
nonprofit or the government (according to information I found online). But
who owned the copyright on those journals in the first place, the IBS or the
authors? I wrote an article for Herbertia, and never assigned my copyright
to them. So my opinion is...I don't have a clue. Does anyone on this list
have a law degree?
