Mr. Miranda, there were 3 or four more pics in your post earlier. Were they deleted intentionally? Can anyone else still see them?

While I agree that it was excessive, I'd suggest that a better compromise would be to post tantalizing but frustratingly small "thumbnail" versions of the scans. Of course, if there was a complaint by the author/publisher and a request to simply remove them, that's one thing... but if you want to get people to buy the book, showing them what's in it would seem to be the way to go.

Copyright is just a matter of law. Ethically, information is free. For law, there are some excellent books available that explain both your legal rights and your responsibilities.
