Subject: Re: UK UFO Magazine - Parr

I can understand the frustration from serious UK ufologists
regarding the contributions and viewpoints promoted by the UK
UFO magazine.

Let us remember that UK UFOMAG is a magazine - and for years has
been Knocking out at least 60% ETH material - 10% advertising -
5% astronomy 10% ufo reports - 10% historical UFO cases - 5%
UFO trivia, etc.

During the emergence of a new and unforeseen 'UFO culture, the
opportunistic and fortunate development of UK UFO Magazine" had
recognised the potential of The X-Files and had incorporated
the new belief system, whilst creating the alleged voice of UK

As an aside - during the early 90's, many ufologists had a low
tolerance for the stance and views of Nick Pope... yet as a
later perspective, I believe Mr Pope has dumped the officialdom
bore trend and has become the committed and polished article and
a credit to the UFO/media representation. I also believe that
Nick will show genuine ufological colours and concentrate on his
ufological potential in UFO Revelations.

UFO magazine had a policy 'not to pay for evidence... I remember
Graham Birdsall being stung for copyright by Kiviat TV for 50
pounds)... for printing a still from footage from Kent 1999 (see
Chris Rolfe Kent Ufologist)

I have discussed UFO cases and incidents and issues with Mr
Birdsall over the years and the man never gave anybody a bad
word and supported Ufo studies to the hilt. Mr Birdsall was ETH
and supported the cause.

What evidence and who owns copyright?

I would expect experienced UFO authors/contributors footage
experts to know who owns the copyright and if you forward it
without consent then you may be exploited with your UFO evidence
