In general, we would all do well to respect the creative property of others on the internet and World Wide Web. That people would so generously share their creative efforts in such a universally accessable way does not constitute a waiver of their right to determine how it may be used. Please ask for permission before using such material in a way that is outside the scope outlined by the author. And remember, if the author does not specifically call out material as copyrighted, it is still covered by copyright law, and should be assumed copyrighted. There is never a need to make illicit copies of Web material, because it is already accessable to everyone without restriction, through the simple click of a mouse, and because e-mail makes it so easy to ask for permission.
