Ah, I understand where you're going. Not necesarily, I'm refering to articles that have been posted on websites for profit. The website I speak of datamines as many copyrighted articles it can find off the internet and not just reference documentation. Dru's articles, for instance, have definitely not been BSD licensed and O'Reilly certaintly doesn't do that i.e. somebody is making money from other people's work.

It's like I printed a few thousand copies of your PostgreSQL book (is it BSD licensed?)  and kept the profits for myself without giving you any royalties?
