    I noticed that I can no longer access the first site, and the second site comes up with an error.

    These manuals have been an immense help to me, so I would like to host the Series 3 Manuals 1 to 7 that I have:

    Series III Manuals
    Do you have authority from the copyright owner to publish the manuals? How much did it cost you for the rights?

    People should be advised to buy the books, or even the CD's they are minimal costs and never have a problem of them being closed down because they are a breach of copyright.

    You can get them here on AULRO Dave's Interesting Things - LANDYCD or from the Heritage centre in the UK. Land Rover Series III & Stage I 1971 to 1985 - Heritage Motor Centre Online Shop (10GBP + postage last time I looked)

    You won't find me on: faceplant; Scipe; Infragam; LumpedIn; ShapCnat or Twitting. I'm just not that interesting.

    Original "Land Rover" manuals are not copyrighted, the CD's are a collection of public domain material. However, I have removed the link to my server at your request. Sorry for the trouble...my first post here too...

    Absolutely they are copyrighted and the copyright is now owned Jaguar Land Rover and licensed to Haynes Books.

    The wording in my Series 3 manual is " Rover-British Leyland UK Limited 1977. All rights Reserved. No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system or transmitted, in any form, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or other means without prior written permission of Rover-Triumph Service Division British Leyland UK Limited." The copyright ownership passes with the ownership of the company now to Jaguar Land Rover as specified above.

    Copyright lasts for 60 years under most legislation and is renewed by republication of the book by the copyright owner for another 60 years. The only Land Rover manuals that fall outside this general rule may be a couple of the very early manuals that were published in loose leaf and never re-published as they were living documents where pages were replaced rather then new editions published. The 1950 Land Rover Workshop and Parts catalogues have never been out of print.

    How do you believe that there is no copyright?

    I had never seen any evidence of it. The only manuals I had seen that were copyrighted were written and owned by 3rd parties, such as Haynes.

    I hardly think Land Rover would take the time and effort to prosecute someone for distributing manuals and parts lists that encourage people to repair and hence buy spare parts from them to fix the vehicles they have sold to them.

    I'll say it again, I'm really very sorry.

    I have been using these forums as a reference for a while and have greatly appreciated them. I thought I'd just help out with some hosting space.

    Some of us like to have hard copies of the original manuals and go out of our way to buy them, I have quite a collection myself. The reason that in 2009 we can buy re-printed copies of the 1948 to 58 Series One Land Rover workshop manual and the 1948 to 1953 parts catalogue is because Land Rover still owned the copyright and sold it to Brookland's Books who have done several re-prints of the book. (Brookland's Books is now owned by Haynes Publications.)

    If copyright was in the public domain there is no security for their intellectual property and it would not be worth their while to invest in a print run. In the longer turn people wanting to restore the vehicles and who like the ability of being able to open the book and study it instead of having to go back and forth to the computer will continue to be able to do so. However I rather suspect that fewer and fewer print runs of any books will occur into the future.

    We are being overwhelmed by the digital age whether we like it or not.

    P.S. I also have a number of the CDROM versions of manuals from the BMIHT in the UK and the RAVE CD's advertised on this forum.

    Exclamation

    As it appears the links to the manuals are now dead, could we please "unsticky" this post ?

    It'll save people wasting their time....

    Thanks,

    Pete
