Rule #1: YOU MUST clip all extraneous text when replying to a message.

Marx died in 1883. Last month, the problem he described reappeared in digital form. The volunteers who manage the Marxists Internet Archive, a free online repository of Marxist writing from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, received a letter from Lawrence & Wishart, a London publishing house, asking them to remove several hundred early texts by Marx and Engels from their site. Lawrence & Wishart has partial ownership of the rights to the only complete English translation of the Marx & Engels Collected Works, a set of fifty volumes representing a thirty-year effort by translators. The copyright is shared with International Publishers, based in New York, and a long-defunct Soviet publishing house called Progress Press.
