I wanted to share the good news on SRI with the nls-legal 
list.  Together with the release from Verizon, which we also received 
on Friday, this completely covers the chain of ownership from SRI to 
Tymshare/Tymnet to McDonnell Douglas to BT to MCI.  Thanks to 
everyone for their help with this part of the project!  As before, 
please treat this and the Verizon information as "for CHM internal 
use only" until John determines the most appropriate way to announce 
it publicly.    (01)

>Dear Mr. Gust:
>It was nice speaking with you yesterday.  I have attached my 
>proposed NLS  copyright dedication letter to the Computer History 
>Museum for your review.  As we discussed, I identified SRI as having 
>held the NLS copyright, and of dedicating it for all non-commercial 
>purposes.  Since the records of our sale of NLS to Tymshare in 1977 
>are not available, I have assumed that, even if we transferred the 
>copyright to Tymshare, we would have retained some rights for its 
>use in research.
>If this letter is OK with you, I will send it to Mr. Toole.
