    Default Anyone Every buy those "laser info" Cd's on ebay?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/LASER-TECHNOLOGY...QQcmdZViewItem

    Anybody got these? Any good?

    Seems like theres a lot of stuff in there that would take forever to compile by hand.

    Anyone got a copy they are willing to loan me so I can upload it all to PL?

    As stated by the seller:

    The contents of these works are in the public domain. However, parts of this published CD ROM file are not in the Public Domain. It has a digital signature and is on deposit in the Library of Congress, USA. Anyone may freely distribute or reprint the contents of this work for non-profit or personal use.

    Makes me wonder if he's held accountable to the same rules... Seems silly that he's selling them given the no commercial reproduction clause.

    I think he's trying to protect his publication format. He says elsewhere that the content is all public domain. I think he's trying to limit copying in direct form.

    Similar to the Arctos patent, which can't patent the use of mirrors to deflect laser light, or the use of a beam splitter to recombine polarised beams, any more than someone could patent the use of water for washing. It's just trying to protect a specific layout, the way the public domain parts and methods are brought together in a specific instance.
