Heathkit manuals... Copyright issues.

No, I think we should fight them.  If my information is correct, then 
a Mexican stand off should start.  We'll need to group together and 
support our friends who post these schematics and books.  If they 
find out that can't bully us, then this stupid thing will stop.

Ask yourself, what value does all the Heath stuff have. (or any of 
the others?)  They are done.  That part of the hobby has died. 
Historians will be able to print what they want to a need, they 
always do.  What's left?  Just someone wanting to take their football 
and go home.  I can't imagine for a minute there will be any profit 
in it for them.

After this, would any of us buy anything from them?
