[QUOTE=pckopp;24944841] In Sam's case he published his work. People bought it. And just like a book, when they are done they can pass it along to their friends. Ever bought a paperback that both you and your wife read? It is not out of the realm of possibility that Sams published work could end up in a library with millions of other published works, available to check out for a month at a time.[QUOTE]
All true except only one person can read a book at one time, much different than posting an electronic version of the book in the Internet so thousands of people can read it at one time.
Also much different if Sam sold it with the agreement that it was for one time use only by the purchaser. Unless you know for sure something is in the public domain it should not be reproduced in any form without the expressed permission of the National Football League. Sound familiar?
