Interested in making a C.S. Lewis Quotes Facebook App

Interested in making a C.S. Lewis Quotes Facebook App

Postby aToaster » 27 Dec 2007, 09:00

This question probably goes out to John. I was thinking it would be neat to have a C.S. Lewis random quote Facebook application. I don't think it would be a hard script to write up. I noticed you had a quote generator on the front of the page. Did you have to get permission from the C.S. Lewis Company? Any possibility of sharing the quote database? Anyways, just wondering. Thanks =)

Hi, aToaster.

Nice idea. To answer your questions: yes, I did get permission from the C. S. Lewis Company (back in 1999 or so), and unfortunately, no, I cannot share the database with you or anybody else.

The C.S.Lewis company is very protective of its product, and it is unwise to use it without permission.

Have you put it up yet? If you have, can you send an "application invitation" to me?

I'm on Facebook.com also. My name is Carolyn Barratt, & my network is 'Toronto.' :smile:

^ This was 6 months ago...and unless aToaster received permission to use the quotes, chances are this application wasn't made. You can easily search Facebook's apps to see yourself.
