I was just running through some things that I wanted to get back now that I am back into railfanning. One of those things is Train Shed Cyclopedia. I have a number of these in storage and they are wonderful to thumb through. But while I was thinking about them I looked some of them up on Ebay and found that a number of these small books were up for bid at more than $100 dollars. Now here is the big question in my mind. These books are out of print. Now, I think the biggest crime in the universe is to let information dissapear due to the fact that the publication is no longer in print. So in my mind the best thing anyone could do is digitize them. There are however powers at work out there that say that copying these things is illegal. I never said that these powers were intelligent. I agree with copyright (30 year span) but after that, ethically they should be copied. If they aren't then they are lost. I wanted to ask others what they knew about this or what their opinion is. My view is copy it no matter what the greed heads say. But that is simply my opinion. I want to know so I could find out what the truth of this is. I would love to copy these things to make sure that others had access to the info for generations to come but I always like to know what the reality is first.
