<<<I'm rather shocked that Google thinks this is a clear example of fair
use. Dan's copyright notice:

---
No part of this book may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any
means, graphic, electronic, or mechanical, including photocopying,
recording, taping, or by any information storage retrieval system, without
written permission of the publisher.

Seems fairly explicit to me. I do hope Dan wont sue me for electronically
reproducing his copyright notice (which I copied from Google Print). I do
believe *my* use fits under the fair use definition. But I'm not a
lawyer.>>>

I am. It does.

The fact that one can get the entire book by hacking the system - and not a
particularly difficult hack if two clarinetists can independently figure it
out - may be a legal difficulty in the program. See

This will be an interesting one to watch.
