    Or how Cook was quite another navigator.

    Yes, that paper is only 47 years old, so I suppose that copyright
    restrictions apply, strictly speaking, and I should really have pointed that
    out. Readers should respect that. It has here been made available for the
    purpose of academic discussion, but should not be disseminated further, and
    it might be wise for Frank to make it unavailable again after it's had time
    to serve its purpose.

    Unless Frank publishes it and it turns into a best seller rivalling Dava's booklet AND tries to keep all the loot for himself I'm not sure he has too much to worry about ...
    People have strange ideas about copyright.
