Wonderful! Should always be this way.

Its rather sparse now - they just got set up very recently. It will grow quickly [I hope]! However, as anyone can upload, copyright and other such issues could well arise. I don't know if they have the resources to 'vet' them - or care to. I've always been surprised that Scribd stays in business - as they have many in copyright books there.

Academic research is almost always paid for by the taxpayer and should be available to them - to anyone. Corbett recently did a very good show on the absurdity of most copyright and patents etc...and how they are being eroded.

Ditto re Scribd Pete.

I'm also still surprised that Youtube stay in business, as it seems to me that copyright is breached there thousands of time a day.

My guess is that there is an acceptable copyright breach and an unacceptable one. It depends who is doing the breaching.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
Carl Jung - Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14
