Copyright and Permissions
I am not certain of the legality of publishing these articles. I have not (yet) attempted to contact the authors to seek permission to publish their works. I appreciate that this is not the way to do things and apologise in advance if this has caused any upset. In my defence, I would note that there have been quite a few contributors to Your Computer and to be honest I would not beging to know start looking for them – this assumes that they want to be tracked down at all.
With regard to readers letters, listings and such like, I have supplied the name of the author and the general location where they lived. For example, Meurglys68, Kent. This allows me to recognise the author of the letter or program but also means that they are not likely to fall prey to any unwelcome invasions of privacy.
Please note that none of the articles on this site (with the exception of the front page) are my work. I have accredited the authors on each article posted where their name was used in the original article. If a name does not appear then it can be assumed that the copyright of the piece is that of IPC (such as with editorials).
The same is also true of the listings supplied by both writers and readers of the magazine. None of the programs provided are my own work (although I am 99% certain that I did get a small program published with Your Computer). Any errors within the listings – apart from those presented as an image, rather than text – will more than likely be down to me and my erratic OCR software.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you object to any of the posts on this site.
Ultimately, I do intend to contact the journalists and artists that contributed to this magazine, and as such would welcome any suggestions as to where these people are.
