AFA I recall from an earlier discussion on this list, it is
not necessary to even to put a copyright notice - let alone the
year on/under your photos - you automatically own the copyright to the
images you create. That said, it is always a good thing to do in order to
With regard to daisy-chaining Polaroids - I once daisychained
two SS4000s. They came up in Silverfast under Scanners as Sprintscan 4000 ID:x
and ID:y (SCSI ID NOs). You could then select which one to use.. If you
would want to use them simultanously, you would probably have to install two
copies of Silverfast or use one on PCI.

Rob, the copyright symbol in your notice should be followed immediately
the year, not your name.
Stan, since when does the
copyright office accept CDs for the required
deposit? I was
specifically told when I called them (US Copyright Office)
months ago that they wouldn't accept CDs. They are studying the
issue of digital registration of copyrights (with a particular concern for
works of art "born digital"), but at the present time they still demand
hardcopy photos (or a video tape of the photos). Maybe someday we'll
to make our copyright application entirely via the internet,
digital signature, credit card payment, and digital deposits
(such as scanned
film or photos "born digital"). But right now, we
still have to do it the
old fashioned way. They probably threw your
CDs away. Of course, they throw
just about all deposits away after
two years, so what difference does it
make? Anyway, this is not the
place for a long thread on this topic but I
wanted to warn you that you
may not have a legal copyright registration. By
the way, all US
photographers who register copyrights should checkout
http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for the latest forms, instructions, etc.
Now for an on-topic request for info on the new Polaroid SS120 medium
I currently have a PC with Me operating system
(firewire ready, from what I
understand, but no firewire card installed).
I currently have a Polaroid
SS4000 installed via a SCSI card.
If I buy an SS120, can I have both it and
the SS4000 connected at
the same time so that I can use either one as the
mood strikes me?
The SS120 can be used with either firewire or SCSI, but
come with a card for either. I would like to connect it to the back
of my SS4000 so that they form a SCSI daisy chain. Will that work?
complications will I have with two sets of software?
Or maybe four sets
since I want to use both Insight and SilverFast
with both scanners. Has
anyone installed these two scanners on a PC
simultaneously, and can they be
made to coexist together?
