Subject: RE: Sale of DT intellectual property?
You are right in one sense Garg, Once something is on the web it is available to everyone else.

It's kinda like a public library, the books are available there for free; BUT, that law does not allow us to take those books and publish them ourselves.

The DT is Susan & Dick's database so questions on its distribution are theirs. At the very least, if someone is publishing the whole database they should have the courtesy to talk with Susan and Dick before doing so.
