I would agree entirely that the authors should be recompensed for their effort in putting the manual together. 

However, I find it an interesting sentiment to be aired on a list that has at times displayed a (sometimes bad-tempered) dislike of the whole idea of intellectual property.

Now, as far as I can tell (as a named inventor - you can look me up on the european patents database) the patent system only benefits corporations, but how do we ensure that authors get adequate reward for their work witout copy rights?
