Re: Possible Copyright Violation?

Let me just run through the facts here because I would like to keep things in perspective. I do not advocate piracy except in speech on talk like a pirate day. This is not a video or song. It's not a long extract from a book. This is a short document of quotes compiled from a number of old magazines. The document is not being made available on aikiweb. It is freely available on the internet. The site where it can be read and downloaded is not a suspicious file-sharing site. It is a reputable aikido dojo run by one of the top aikido teachers in the USA. That teacher is a personal acquaintance of Stanley Pranin. One of the instructors in that dojo is an attorney. The document explicitly encourages the copying and distribution to other people. If you don't want to read it or download it that is your choice.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
