Hi chaps, a bit of advice please.

Earlier this year I attended a military vehcile event, and quite frankly, the toilets were poo!:mad:

 

The toilets were the subject of a debate on a military vehcile forum I go on and I wrote a letter of complaint to the show organiser, to which I recieved a reply.

 

I started a new thread on the forum showing my letter to the show organisers and thier reply to me.

 

However, the forums owner deleted the thread saying that unless the sender of the reply gave permission, the letter cannot be published on the forum due to 'legal' issues. :mad:

 

So my question to you; can I publish a letter sent to me without the senders permission?

cheers.


All I ask is to be treated fairly and lawfully.

You can't do anything that the owner of the site don't want you to do. He has the final say.

Agreed, but, who owns the copyright to the letter they sent to me?

When a letter is sent, the ownership of the letter is transfered to the recipient. The copyright, and therefore the right to publish the letter, remains (unless assigned in writing) with the writter of the letter. Legally, under normal circumstances, only the original writer of the letter can publish it or make copies.
