One of my ongoing questions regarding sharing "old" docs is the
copyright issue. "Heathkit Educational Systems" still exists in Benton
Harbor, MI, and claims to continue 75+ years of "the Heathkit approach".
They also sell copies of (some) manuals. At the same time, there are
several longtime vendors who also sell copies of Heathkit (and many
other) copyrighted manuals. Has the trademark been abandoned? Is the
owner/operator of a website providing copies of this material in
violation of copyright law and liable to prosecution? Have you had any
relevant experiences (pro or con) with the retroarchive material?
