TSK is now in the public domain, but the current etext is not, and we have not been able to get a license for it. It would be a very difficult and costly project to etext it again, as the printed copy is tiny and cryptic and there would be many scanning errors.

My point is that considerable work is needed to prepare an accurate etext for a volume like this, and those who do so retain the rights to their work. Even when the etext is made freely available on-line for individual users, there are often restrictions on its use for commercial purposes. This is separate from the need to arrange a license to use the contents of a text that is not in the public domain, i.e. still under copyright.

Let me just say as a fairly new user that I have found both this forum and the new blog invaluable. I find myself reading something here or at the blog and then after going back to Accordance saying to myself "Oh, I see." Notwithstanding my statement above, I still desire certain works, but in time they may come.
Thank you all. I hope I can get to Wheaton. I live in the Chicago area, but I'm just not sure about the timing.
