	Other less interested parties have adequately pointed out that
that the legal questions are far more murky than you would allow. The

any copy :machines in libraries in the United States.  Libraries and
librarians :are rsponsible for enforcement of copyright and fairuse in
bothe the :legal sense and moral/ethical sense.  :-- :Wilfred Drew (Call
