If this was a FB post, I would "like" it. Excellent.

  I submitted an article to a professional journal (Not LJ - they pay!) and got some sort of garbage response about how I couldn't retain copyright and would not have reprint privileges.


  In response, I told them that I would pull the article unless I could retain reprint on online privileges. At that point, they told me that they signed those contracts only with companies, not individuals.


  So I created (in my head) Tony Greiner Enterprises, and sold it the rights to the article for 1 cent. I sent the article in, again, under the new company name, and said it would retain copyright and online rights. The article was printed, and I have reprinted the article and used it online.




  Tony Greiner, President, CEO, and Proprietor of Tony Greiner Enterprises.
