Jan-25-08  whiskeyrebel: I can't believe no one has posted here yet. Besides operating, being a Tal translator and a journalist of note with in depth interviews of titans of our game, Mr. Russell gave me excellent advice on occasion and significant encouragement when he was for some reason forced to live in my boyhood hometown of Portland, Oregon in the early 70's. I'm sure over the years he's counseled hundreds of other juniors, most of whom likely went further than I could. I also understand he has some chess "political" enemies. In spite of all that, I want to lift my glass to him. Thanks.

Sep-23-08  whiskeyrebel: We're getting old. I drew him once in a tournament when I was 13. I found the game score in a musty box. It was 1970. I wish my computer had functioning sound for the show.

Oct-05-08  Karpova: Hanon W. Russell's article "Steal This Article!":

Russell writes about plagiarism and describes one case of blatant stealing entertainingly. The article is really worth reading.

An excerpt:

Hanon W. Russell: <And so, dear reader, as you ponder this sticky wicket, you may wonder: “Why bother? What’s the point?” You may also be perplexed why one of the world’s most heavily visited and most respected chess websites is even bothering with this justchess incident. Doesn’t the mosquito-on-an-elephant’s-butt principle apply?

We would respectfully suggest that there are several reasons that not only publishers and authors should be concerned, but readers as well. Like most journals that publish quality material, ChessCafe pays its columnists for each article they contribute. These articles belong to these writers; they are their intellectual property. And for those who are professional writers (not players who also happen to write), the articles are more than just intellectual property. They are their stock-and-trade, their bread-and-butter. This is how they earn their living.

That means that if you enjoy Hans Ree’s storytelling, Mark Dvoretsky’s instructive analysis, or for that matter, any good writer’s work that appears anywhere, you must not stand for or otherwise support any person or publisher that steals and misappropriates someone else’s work. Forgetting for the moment that this is thievery which is no different than swiping someone’s watch, if their work is stolen or republished in violation of copyright, at some point, the decision may be made to stop writing, stop publishing, and then we will all be the poorer for it.>
