Following up on my last post, here are two more stories of access and creation. Veronica Mars is a television series involving a young
female detective played by Kristen Bell.
The television series has a strong and loyal following, but was cancelled
after a few seasons. Apparently, there
were grumblings about creating a movie based on the television series, but nothing
was happening. Well, something has
happened—in a little over one day via crowdfunding on Kickstarter over 2.7
million dollars has been raised to create the movie. There are over 45,000 backers of the
film. Read more here, and here. There are also incentives for
various giving levels. At the top, for
one person who donates more than $10,000:
Each publication has a suggested price. We price full casebooks based on our belief that it is fair to ask a student pay about $1 for the reading material for each one-hour class session. Different schools use different calendars and credit hours, so we've settled on a suggested price for most of our casebooks of $30. We ask that you pay the suggested price either with a credit card (by clicking the appropriate link on our page), or by sending us a check, and then download a digital copy of the casebook. Note that if your professor has assigned, e.g., only 10 class sessions of material from a Semaphore Press book, then we suggest that you pay $10.
