Hmm...Copyright violation anyone? Anyone? Most of Kelly's stuff won't be public domain until 2048.

I wouldn't so lightly state copyright violation except there is almost no attempt at discussion of the strips. Not even a feeble effort at fair use.

What a grump....

The guy makes a fair use claim at the bottom of his pages and makes the (legally irrelevant, I know) distinction between commercial and non-commercial re-uses. And it can't be entirely irrelevant ethically that he worships Kelly.

Legally, he'd probably be broken-hearted if the Kelly estate, which used to be vigorous about this stuff, made a claim. Ethically, he's a prince.

Tulk calling someone else -- ANYONE else -- a "grump"?

I'm speechless.
