That's a good question.  If you send me a filk for which the root song is widely known, then I probably won't print the music for it and just say "sung to the tune of..."  If it's a less known song, I'll see about crediting it properly and printing it.  The publication is not for sale, and due credit will be given, so I don't see that there would be a problem.  Does anyone know more about this kind of issue?  Otherwise, I'll check with the Kingdom Chronicler and see what he advises.

As many of us write filks, what's the position on publishing of such? 
My concern is the copyright issues that may arise from the use of 
certain tunes, ie, those that are not in the public domain.
