Re: Sailor Music

Dear Madam:

Pursuant to our recent conversation, I would like to notify Sailor Music of our intentions to release a cover version of Steve Miller's "Fly Like an Eagle." Since I am new to the publishing business, your guidance in this matter would be greatly appreciated. A separate letter has been sent regarding Superhype Music, Inc. (for Led Zepplin's "Whole Lotta Love" and "Black Country Woman"), as well as, a membership request for our publishing company, The Philadelphia Spirit Experiment.

When I visited your world wide web site, I could not locate any data on the process of obtaining permission. Information on both the ethics and legalities would be quite useful. Can this be found on-line? If not, could it be mailed?

Please note that our company publishes it's correspondence in The Internet Gazette (anonymously, of course). Should you have any concerns about our publishing practices, please contact us at any of the addresses listed below.

Thank you. I shall await your advice.
