i have bought copies of several programing manuals and books, i would like to make these available on my website. Obviously there is not a chance of me being granted copyright permission to reproduce them.
so if i publish them i am in breach of copyright, but what is the chance of me
* being caught
* being prosecuted
I am in the UK - does this change anything. Does the copyright owner have to request its removal before starting any legal proceedings.
Any advice (especially from any lawyers/solicitors on the board)
would be very much appreciated
