in thread Where can I download copies of free, legal O'Reilly books in HTML form?

Last year, I heard an interview with O'Reilly on the radio and he said that they don't care if people download their older books, as it helped to spread knowledge and the O'Reilly brand name. That is why they don't take legal action to block these sites. But, I speak from memory, and may be wrong.

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.

    My memory only contains the bitter feeling after lots of downvotes I got as a newbie here after linking to the very same site. I also read somewhere O'Reilly tried to talk to the owners of the site, but without any effect (source forgotten).

      Well, I didn't downvote you, but may well have voted "Edit" to remove the links if your nodes were considered. Have an upvote from me this time, anyway. :-)

    .ua is Ukraine. I doubt O'Reilly can take any legal action against sites there.
