Subject: Omitted Rons' Copyright Notices

Hi Fellow Scientologists,

While comparing my "By L. Ron Hubbard" green policy volumes with my "newer and improved" dba "L. Ron Hubbard Library" (Church of Spiritual Technology, Inc) green policy volumes, I accidently ran into another ommission.

When HCO PL's were issued, they ALWAYS included the copyright notice at the bottom with WHO was responsible for routing/editing/typing up Rons policies. At the end of the page, the notice usually goes like this ...

LRH:jw.rd
Copyright 1962
by L. Ron Hubbard
ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

This is put at the end of each of these policy letters WITHOUT exception. Only the innitials after "LRH:" may have been different.

The mystery is ... this copyright notice is OMITTED from all the "new and improved" dba "L. Ron Hubbard Library" (CST,inc.) green volume versions. There are NO exceptions. EVERY single one of Ron's individual policy letters are missing Ron's Copyright notice.

1) WHY?

The only copyright notice in the new CST green volumes is in the front and it says ...

Copyright 1991, L. Ron Hubbard Library, All Rights Reserved

But my "old" set of green volumes says ...

Copyright 1970, 1974
1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962
1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969
by L. Ron Hubbard
ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

You see, Ron did some things for us to build in protective mechanisms and one of those was to place his copyright logo on ALL his HCOB's and HCO PL's as insurance that they would NOT get altered. So when I see ANYTHING not made an exact copy of, it gives me a rather alert eye. So I started to do a little digging to try to find an explanation and I seem to have turned up with something.

"Shortly after the reported date of L. Ron Hubbard's death--24 January 1986--Norman F. Starkey was appointed as Executor of L. Ron Hubbard's will and estate. But Starkey operated under a dizzying array of titles, including:

1. Norman F. Starkey, Executor of the Estate of L. Ron Hubbard & Trustee of Author's Family Trust
2. Norman F. Starkey, Executor of the estate of L. Ron Hubbard
3. Norman F. Starkey, Executor of the will of L. Ron Hubbard, d.b.a. L. Ron Hubbard Library
4. Norman F. Starkey, Executor of the will of L. Ron Hubbard
5. Norman F. Starkey, Trustee of Author's Family Trust-B
6. Norman F. Starkey, Trustee of the Estate of L. Ron Hubbard & Trustee of Author's Family Trust
7. Norman F. Starkey, Trustee of Author's Family Trust-B d.b.a. L. Ron Hubbard Library
8. Norman F. Starkey, Trustee of Author's Family Trust

No matter what he called himself, he spent seven years gathering up every L. Ron Hubbard copyright in sight. Then on 29 November 1993, less than two months after the Church of Spiritual Technology (CST) was granted tax exemption by IRS, Starkey transferred all the L. Ron Hubbard copyrights to CST, as is illustrated below. (NOTE: The "License Agreements" illustrated between Starkey and the Religious Technology Center (RTC) did not transfer actual ownership. The other transactions shown in the chart do indicate transfer of ownership, referred to as "assignment.")"

So on this date of 29 November 1993, Norman Starkey transfered all 7,730 titles in a Transfer of Copyright to Church of Spiritual Technology (CST).

I was certainly not familiar with any of this. There is nothing written about this Scientology history in the BOTWO book "What is Scientology." Apparently this is history we're not suppose to know. I wondered, who in the heck is Church of Spiritual Technology? So I found more data about that at...

2) It behooves us to know who now controls the copyrights to all LRH works too, doesn't it?

Especially when we see squirreling.

Here's who they apparently are and I'll quote ..

"There are four co-founders: Sherman Lenske, Meade Emory (former Assistant to the Commissioner of IRS), Lyman Spurlock, and Leon Misterek. Of the four, only Lyman Spurlock even claims to be a Scientologist. He is also a CPA. The other three are tax and probate attorneys. Although the four are named as co-founders in a 1992 United States Claims Court ruling, Sherman Lenske is named as "sole incorporator" in the Articles of Incorporation."

So perhaps we need to get the above founders of Church of Spiritual Technology to tell RTC to do it's job of insuring the purity of Rons words because apparently RTC cannot get their own ethics in about this squirreling.

They made alterations in the exact text of ALL our admin policies by DELETING all of Ron's copyright notices. Making ANY change in itself is not ok. But RTC allowed WHOLESALE ALTERATIONS AND DELETIONS on ALL of Hubbards' policies which is a Scientology high-crime of immeasurable proportions!

DUPLICATION -- TO MAKE AN EXACT COPY OF

3) What word does RTC not understand?

They are to be held accountable for this.

RTC has a BIG m.u. (misunderstood word) on the word DUPLICATION

We can no longer turn a blind eye and let this continue.

Yours for not squirrling tech and getting to the bottom of truth,
