Re: [SEAOC] Question to Engineers

All codes should be sold through and available from outlets nominated 
from authorities only.  To put the codes on the web, where every one 
can download it for free, dimminishes their authoritative 
role. In fact, in Australia, it is an offence against law to even 
photocopy any thing from the code(not that it is not being done). 

I think to preserve the authenticity and the authority of the codes 
they ought not to be put on the web. I do not know much about the 
blue book.
