Re:68 ford, merc, coug service book

There are laws concerning fair use of copyrighted materials. However, I think that Ford would have a case against online reproduction of the entire manual, because that could potentially affect the sales of their product -- a no-no if you're claiming "fair use." All in all, I think it's a bad idea unless their copyright is expired. I'll try and remember to ask my friend about this -- he just graduated from UT law school with an intellectual property and patent law focus. He probably has some familiarity with copyright law, and may be able to tell me where to look for copyright information.
