The Copyright Salvage Team Charter
The Copyright Salvage Team (CST) was formed in mid August 2003 in response to the new E2 copyright policy. The CST originally operated under the auspices of the Copyright Redemption Quest During the Quest, the Copyright Salvage Team (CST) reviewed over 550 writeups submitted by 97 different E2 authors. 535 of the writeups were deemed compliant with the new policy and the authors were encouraged to add the CST Approved tag as an indication that the writeup had passed a formal inspection. The text of these reviews was stored for future reference in a series of documents titled CST_Storage_n. A summary of the compliant reviews was created in Copyright Compliant Lyrics and Poems.
The Quest formally ended on 22 September 2003, and the idea of continuing the CST as an ongoing service to the E2 community was considered. This document formalizes the results of those discussions and provides a working framework for the CST's continuing operations. It is intended to be a working model that will evolve as new ideas and techniques emerge.
Mission & Mandate
The CST's primary purpose is to provide a service to the E2 community, authors, editors and management. We perceive that the transition to a copyright-compliant database has benefits for all involved and our goal is to facilitate that transition wherever possible. To date we have identified three primary areas where we feel we can be of service:
