Dear Sir or Madam:

It has been brought to my attention that you have posted Elena Kagan’s senior thesis online. (See: Copies provided by the Princeton University Archives are governed by U.S. Copyright Law and are for private individual use only. Any electronic distribution is prohibited, as noted on the first page of the copy that is on your website. Therefore I request that you remove it immediately before further action is taken.

Please notify me as soon as possible that you have removed it from your web site.

Sincerely yours,

Is Daniel J. Linke asserting that Princeton University holds copyright over the thesis? I thought it was copyright 1981 to Elena Kagan. Is Daniel J. Linke asserting that he is acting as Elena Kagan's agent in requesting the take-down?
