: - The situation: I want to incorporate letters I've received over the years into a romance novel.
: - The question: If I do NOT identify the sender, can I use and copywrite this material? Are the letters my property, and not the author's, as they were sent to me unsolicited?
: Thank you!!
: Have a wonderful day!
