Hi Dave,
I suppose without having done any further research to it, that, sadly,
the ADA-law is not applicable in other countries than the one it comes
from. US ? UK ?

The problem the project responsible have, is that they have been asked
to prevent the distribution of the file.
So if the file is distributed with any of the means the project
leaders can control, they HAVE to stop it. Mailingslist, wiki, their
website and so on are clearly under their control.
A peer to peer network however would not, for example, but only if
there would be no instructions on the list about it.

They are checking the case at the moment to find a solution, so
please, don't get weird and see if there isn't a very simple solution
to the problem.
