Whats our DVD Project
We have created an Elvis Presley Omnipedia DVD, with over 9150 pages of facts, figures, CD releases and much more. See below for details. Here you can see screenshots of the main pages, and what information is included. We aim to get permission from EPE to sell this DVD set and donate all monies to charities. We would love to hear your comments about this after you have taken a look. If you have any questions or comments, contact email@example.com

Not sure what "Such a project could be in direct conflict with current and ongoing projects of Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc" means, sounds like complete load of bullcrap to me !!!!! Well, I will have to take a few days to think about what happens now and how I can take this project forward, and sidestep those wonderful people at EPE.
Well. Ive now been speaking to Lauren Denny at Sony Music and just waiting for a reply from her. I've asked for permission to list the CD's with cover art. I'm hoping they dont go and charge me big time, seeing as all net proceeds are going to charity. I also had a nice chat with Todd Slaughter and had great advice from him. Told Todd I'd also spoken with Sid Shaw of Elvisly Yours and waiting to hear back from him.
