HIGH PRODUCTIVITY PUBLISHING
This was the legal name of the proprietorship that published the first version of my “Do Ask Do Tell” book as well as the “Our Fundamental Rights” book before I went with cooperative publishing. See http://www.doaskdotell.com/hppub for information regarding the old domain hppub dot com.

Since I am using a cooperative publisher, I may discontinue using this assumed name later in 2005. Should my relationship with the cooperative publisher be discontinued, I might resume using it, only for the formality of retaining the purchased ISBN numbers (see link below). However, the website name will be known as this one, http://www.doaskdotell.com
This phrase was also used as a domain name. The domain name has been better known as a
“nickname,” hppub.com That name is also being discontinued as on
Given the way domain names are used and sold,. it is possible for a third party to take over this domain name. If this happens, please understand that there is no connection between me and that third party, or between the former use of that domain name and the third party. You may find this name printed on the “Our Fundamental Rights” book or on copies of the first printing of the “Do Ask Do Tell” book; finding that would not imply any connection with any other party that uses that name in the future.
There are a couple of reasons for this. I believe that I can sell the content more effectively to investors at some point if it is under one domain name. Furthermore, the legal and ethical climate in the Internet is not as freewheeling as it was a few years ago, with there being greater risk of unintended dilution of similar wordmarks or trademarks of other or future entities. Generally, an individual today ought to use only one “.com” domain name not based on himself to offer free content.
I spend very little time actually “operating” an established business, since I conduct few sales myself. Sometimes there are requests for reprint or for permissions. Most time is spent with content developed from my own initiative, without specific customers now, but for eventual presentation to agents and other possible customers in the future. The time that is spend (however small) in operational matters is tracked. (See also the note at the end of this file about other authors’ books.)
