Is it acceptable to post a link to draft, unreleased materials? I found a link to what appear to be draft pdf versions of Star Wars Adventure Journals 16 and 17, but wasn't sure if it was alright to post the links to those web pages.

You're going to have to find out if those were released with or without permission, and what permission they were granted. It's touchy when it comes to electronic documents and copyright.

I'll hold off providing a link, then. It sounds like this will take some researching. Does anyone have any suggestions as to who I might contact? Someone with LFL perhaps?

Cheshire, are you an admin? Is there a list of admin somewhere?

Loc Taal is the admin, as is Scrawprin. Loc is your best bet though.

Well... the information is out there. It's on the web for download. However, the places that carry them are largely torrent sites and PtP file servers. We're still not sure exactly under what conditions the stories were released. If it wasn't meant for free distribution, then we can't post them on the boards. It's a shame, but rules are rules, and Loc Taal says the rule is that we don't violate copyright.
