- Without wishing to cast a damper on things, I should point out that that's not a scan from an original copy of the book (as our printed facsimile is), but rather a scan of a previous (much more expensive) facsimile made from proprietary microfilm images. While the text of the book itself is out of copyright, edited graphic images of the pages can be subject to copyright. In short it's fine to scan an original and distribute it in any way you choose, but it's a copyright violation to scan someone else's edited facsimile images and distribute them freely, especially when, as in this case, the publishers have expressly forbidden electronic reproduction of their facsimile.In the same way, you can - in Europe if not the US - freely copy old 78's dating from before 1957 (ie more than 50 years old) and reproduce them on CD, but you can't then copy and distribute a CD based on someone elses CD transfers of these old records.I believe this is the reason the WS orginally withdrew the scans - I was not, until now, aware that they were still being hosted elsewhere.David
