THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE
Number 28, May 15, 1997

Enterprise Publisher Fucks Up Bigtime

By L. Neil Smith
lneil@lneilsmith.org

Exclusive to The Libertarian Enterprise

         Through a misunderstanding that was entirely my fault, Issue 25 of The Libertarian Enterprise featured an article entitled "The Final Prejudice", by David Deutsch d.deutsch1@physics.oxford.ac.uk which I had not yet obtained permission to publish.
         I offer no excuse for this monstrous breach of intellectual property rights, although I have assured David that it was entirely accidental. To my immeasurable relief, he has been gentleman enough to forgive me, provided certain reasonable conditions are met.
         One of them, mostly self-imposed, is to apologize, which I have done wholeheartedly. Another is to point out that at the time of the error, David was neither a contributor nor a subscriber ("yet", he has been decent enough to add) to The Libertarian Enterprise. I enjoyed his article and hope he'll see fit to write for us in the future.
         Another is to correct the spelling of his name as it appeared in the bio at the end of the article: D - E - U - T - S - C - H. This will be corrected in the version of David's article that appears on the TLE home page (please, Ken), and subscribers are requested to correct it in any copies they may possess.
         Finally, David asks me to inform TLE readers that he is a physicist at the University of Oxford, author of The Fabric of Reality (we'll be reviewing David's book here, as soon as we receive a copy from his U.S. publisher), and maintains a web site at http://eve.physics.ox.ac.uk/Personal/deutsch/David.html.

Thanks again, David,

L. Neil Smith
