Legacy (Digital copy of Novel)


Fair Use Law Section 7 Paragraph 3.163

Even if an out-of-print book is still protected by copyright, some uses of that book may be considered fair use. Fair use is a statutory exemption that allows for works to be used for criticism, scholarship and other reasons that promote the public good. For example, copying several chapters of an out-of-print book for a non-profit educational purpose would probably be considered fair use.



Forgotten Books: Legacy by James Michener


Legacy focuses on Lt. Col. Norman Starr of the U.S. Army, his wife, Nancy, and his West Point buddy-turned lawyer, Zach. It’s the weekend before Norman is set to testify before a Senate committee looking into the Iran-Contra affair. Norman’s clean on Iran but not on Central America. If he speaks the truth when asked about his activities helping the Contras, Norman will likely do himself some serious damage.
