Well, if you plan to do a clinic/seminar in an open fourm and the PRM meet request you offer a handout, then that is when/why you would go to Kinkos and pay the price. No one here that has done that kind of research knowing fully well that the material was for a book would allow anyone to scan the data and then allow someone to post it to the web... That's Nutz and has nothing to do with sharing. One can share the data in the form of a book, no one with any ethics with regards to the understanding of the work involved would agree the information needs to be free...

"Bill is a generous person, though you
clearly don't know that. And it sure ain't about money. Go to your
local Kinkos or other copy shop with a 54-page document and see what it
costs to copy it, before you complain about Bill's $3 charge."
This is the 21st century. Who goes to Kinkos and pays their prices when you
can scan the handout to a PDF file and distribute it via E-mail for free.
The recipient can print it if desired or just read it on their computer.
So, it's not about money, it's about the willingness to share. One could
argue the cost of scanning, but many HP printers scan for free. If Bill
wants, I'll scan the handout for him and send him the PDF file.
