Re: [vox] Disturbing copyright



that is disturbing.  very disturbing.   can you post the offending publisher,
author and book?

it occurs to me that we should get the book on disk and copyright it as 2001.

lol!

> I was in a bookstore recently looking at a technical book, happened to be a Linux book.  I wanted to see how current this books was, so I looked for the copyright date.  The date was 2002.  This bothers me.  Publishers are now making "white" lies to get you to buy a book, that may in fact be obsolete, when it appears to be current.
