I'm aware that HP granted permission to redistribute the documents. In fact, at one point they granted global permission to anybody to redistribute obsolete manuals, for free or for money. I was never questioning the ethicality of that particular act; I was merely holding it up as an example that this community does not necessarily "pride itself in the free exchange of information" to the exclusion of the contrary. In terms of obsolete HP product documentation, it's probably the least free category of all.
