Copyright issue[edit]

Someone ought to go into detail on the other selves of the Billy Milligan system and their names and abilities. Battrarules

Not in Wikipedia. That would be considered a copyright infringement. In the article on Sybil someone listed her people and it was removed for legal reasons. --Bluejay Young 19:12, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
Actually, the justification for the latter seems questionable to me. Eli the Barrow-boy 21:35, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
How can something like that be copyrighted? The 24 personalities seem as integral to the biography of Milligan as Milligan himself, or the integrated "Professor". Also seems questionable to me.
Silly. Small excerpts *can* be used under fair use. Someone is simply lawyering on that issue. I have the book The Minds of Billy Milligan, so I'll be adding bits and pieces here and there. Wjhonson 23:43, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

i added the people to the list i do not know if this will be deleted or not, but it is posted for the time being. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:55, 26 November 2009 (UTC)


I'll be adding details of his early life, from the book by Keyes. Note: these are not copyright infringements. They are used under fair use rules. Wjhonson 00:03, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

By the way, I'm adding bits and pieces as I find them and as I feel they are useful. It won't be a smooth-flowing biography. So if anyone wants to take the bits and make a smooth narrative out of them, feel free. Wjhonson 00:22, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
