Sasha,

Sounds like the exams didn't do you in, and you still have energy for your proposed surveillance / countersurveillance web site. Congratulations.

As I mentioned previously, the easiest, fastest, most accurate and economical way to use information and graphics from other web sources is through direct linking. Given the way you described your project, that would be fine with me, and no additional permissions are necessary. In fact, there is even a linking policy.

If you would like to directly use a specific graphic or two, just let me know which ones and I will specially prepare them to the size you need with a small credit line built in. Or, if you have an idea for a graphic (like a picture of a bug, for example) I might have something in the files I could donate to the cause.

I originally offered to discuss your project over the phone so I could get a better idea of how you wanted to use my materials. Your descriptive reply answered these questions. This is a worthwhile project, and I encourage you to proceed with it.

Now that the pressure is off you, a call here might well be a good starting point. Any time from 10am to 4pm Monday or Tuesday I should be around. (800-635-0811)

Kevin

P.S. Previous correspondence listed below for easy reference. I will send the Privacy / Surveillance links in another email. Looking through them will give you a feel for what is already available and sources for you to refer to.

Mr. Murray,

We spoke earlier this year about my using some of the images on your site for a
project that was to provide an open source of countermeasures information. After
several emails, you requested that I call you, but I declined in order that I could give
you a ring when I returned home from college. I was curious to see if you still wanted
to speak with me.

Dear sirs,

I would like to acquire permission to use several of the graphics (speciffically the ones delineating the placement of wiretaps) and reprinting some materials from your website in a project of mine advocating personal privacy.

Thank you for your time,
Sasha Berkman


Sasha,

Thank you for asking.

Please tell me more about your project.
What is the "project"? (a book, pamphlet, web site, etc.)
Who are you doing it for?
Who will your audiance be?

I ask for two reasons. One, I need to know the usage before I can agree to it. (We had a bad surprise once before.) Two, I may be able to offer you additional, or more appropriate, materials for you to use.

Feel free to call me if it is easier to explain via phone (908-832-7900).

Kevin

Mr. Murray,

Well sir, as this particular idea is still in the "it sounds real neat,
but can I really do it" phase I can't be too descriptive as yet, but
this is what I had in mind: I'm a civil-libertarian and something of a
paranoid. I'm planning to assemble a website (and maybe get a domain
name to go with it) delineating the ins and outs of surveillance and
counter surveillance. I'd like this to be as comprehensive as possible,
in light of the trouble i've had finding usable information (i'm an
aspiring security-type). I'm doing it for my own sense sense of
accomplishment more than anything. I'm hoping to target the curious,
the paranoid, and telecom hobbiests. I realize that TSCM isn't a
weekend diversion for gearheads Mr. Murray, but there are quite a few
people interested in pursuing it, and I think they should be able to
get resources other than corporate pages (as excellent as yours is).

I'd be delighted to call you after my exams are through and i'm back in
good old 201, if thats allright.

Regards,
Sasha Berkman

Sasha,

Thank you for the quick reply explaining your plans. They sound very worthwhile, and
ambitious (this is not a small subject). I admire your vision. Privacy is becoming an
increasingly rare commodity.

Since your plan is web-based, and you will be collecting information from many sources,
may I suggest links as a strategy instead of duplicating the data on your site. Here is
the reasoning...
- to keep your site's storage space low (saves money)
- to assure that you are showing the latest information (the TSCM field changes
quickly)
- to make your job easier

The only drawback of loosing visitors to these other sites can be overcome by
showing their sites within your frame, thus keeping your navigation buttons handy in a
left-side border. If you do this with my materials, no additional permission is necessary.
Just follow our simple linking guidelines.

Good luck with the exams, and feel free to call when you return. In the meantime, I will
be posting additional materials and charts which might be helpful to you.

Some other locations to check in your spare time as shown below :)
(I realize that you probably don't have any now. Spare time is the second quickest
disappearing commodity.) Just a word of caution, most sites shown are reputable, but
not all. Don't believe everything you read.

Kevin
