Ang: Mapping the C128

Moi Kaikki.

I think you should contact Cowper and see if he approves.
But that's easy for me to say as I have the book in my bookcase. Got it at 
a Library here in Sweden that sold off some old computer books. 
Got Mapping the C128, 1571 Internals and a couple of other books at 10 
SEK(about $1.20) a piece.

Hej allihopa!

Not really a CBM-hacking question per se, but I thought you guys would 
be the most qualified to advise me on this.

To remedy the lack of C128 programming info available on the net, I've 
scanned (not OCRed, just images) and made a PDF of my copy of Compute!'s 
Mapping the Commodore 128, and I'd like to make it available for download.

I searched the net for the author, Ottis R. Cowper, hoping he would give 
me permission to do this. I found a recent email address to someone I 
have good reason to believe is him. I mailed him a few days ago and 
asked him to contact me, but so far he hasn't replied.

What do you think I should do? Upload the PDF to my site and then remove 
it if he doesn't give me permission? Wait until he replies and then 
upload it if he is OK with that? Not give a damn about whether he 
approves or not?

It's a very good book which is not that easy to get hold of (I got mine 
on an Australian ebay auction) so it would be a shame if people wanting 
to program the C128 can't have access to it.
