The Sword of Orion – a classic reviewed

UK Copyright Law

As I noted (here) on my non-Dr. Who blog, the UK Copyright Law is changing (and yes I have the same annoying spinning GIF. In a tribute to Flip-Flop I will also link that blog post back to here as well. Anyway back to the point, at the bottom of this longer article article it mentions…
