  fredthebear: How to Reassess Your Chess, 4th Edition by IM Jeremy Silman

Here's the free PDF online:

My book was already open. All I did was scroll down the page to read it. (So click on the blue link above and scroll down -- you might not need to download anything.)

Jan-19-22  Z truth 000000001: Bad bear... <CG> has a tacit rule not to publish links to pirated books.

Fair use is one thing - an entire volume of a non-PD book is an entirely different matter.

<All rights reserved. No part of this book may be used
or reproduced in any manner whatsoever without written permission from the publisher, except in the case of brief quotations embodied
in critical articles and reviews.>

If you want to get some legit PD content, well Silman himself offers this:

  fredthebear: I'm a law and order bear. How does one establish that the book has been pirated?

Thank you for the help.

BTW, I have two editions of the hard copy, which I tend to prefer. I was trying to help others.

Jan-19-22  Z truth 000000001: Go to Silman's site - I gave you the link. If he wanted to give it to you for free, common-sense suggests he'd do it there.

Generally, everything after 1924 is protected (unless it was published in USSR prior to ~1973 (?- I'm slightly foggy on the exact date:

OK - copyright everywhere is complicated (e.g. was the copyright renewed for works prior to ~1964 - but using the 1924 rule covers pretty much everything according to US law).

Jan-19-22  Z truth 000000001: Yes, the intent may be good, but we're guided by the rules of a public forum.

(Can you delete the original post still? That would be good)

  MissScarlett: It's upto 1927 now, isn't it? The 1926 <ACB> is available at Hathitrust.
Jan-19-22  Z truth 000000001: Ah, maybe you're right. I may have calcified from all those years where it was frozen due to Bono.
Jan-19-22  Z truth 000000001: OK, let's "split" the difference:

So, 1925 in 2021 makes 1926 in 2022.

(Don't tell Hathitrust that <ACB> that 1926 was published in 1927!

[OK, the original content was published in 1926, so it is now PD]

Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: I meant that 1927 and after was protected, so I'm not ceding anything.
Jan-19-22  Z truth 000000001: <MsS> ok, find me something not published before 1927 on Hathitrust (that wasn't explicitly made PD).

A fair request methinks...

Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Why should I? I'm claiming that 1927 and after isn't PD. Pay attention.

If this was improper, they'd be busted by now, shutdown -- no?

Jan-19-22  Z truth 000000001: Oh, I just assume you were being contrary, rather than adjusting to the needless logic inversion.
