Re: Copying Jeep Manual?
Well, I don't have a CD burner, but I do have disks. However, at roughly 1,200 pages, it'll take up a lot of space, and I have no idea as to how I'd put them together in a "book" format.
<font color=blue>Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include -
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or
value of the copyrighted work. The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.</font color=blue>
Since this is "not for profit", and is being used as a "teaching aid" (hey, we are trying to learn from it, why else would we have it), I would think an argument could be made allowing copying. Also, the manual is out of print, so the "potential market" is not hindered. I'm looking at making probably 5 copies, not 500. I don't think D/C is going to waste their time and money on some poor penniless schmuck that just wants to help his friends, without gaining any money for it.
I appreciate the insight though, any other thoughts on this? Of course, this is contingent that the copy house will even copy it and not want some sort of "Letter" from D/C approving them to do the copying. If they do, I'll probably nix the whole idea.
