Jon's request to purchase backissues of VBQ was laudable..but his request for duplicating I suspect was made without thinking it through - he asked if someone would be willing to make a duplicate of a copyrighted item. In this era of the office copy machine it is so easy to forget about copyrights. I fielded some requests the past few months for usage or copies of my own materials - and that prompted me to reprint the newsletters I wrote and I actually made some money doing so (it did take a bunch of time to prep them, so it wasn't a free lunch). After many bike biz efforts that did not pay off, it was nice to get a token for my efforts. If I and others don't protect our copyrights, then the incentive to write diminishes. And of course, if everyone figures "why subscribe to something when I can just copy it later), then there will be nothing to copy.as the potential for profit will evaporate. Mike Kone in Boulder CO
