interesting.. i didnt knew that.

so, this date next to the copyright is actually utterly useless for telling people when the copyright wears off... what a shitty life.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, didn't see there was a reply until now... But I'll take any excuse to engage in some pedantry.

The notation "Copyright 2002-2012" doesn't, AFAIK, signify the period in which the copyright is valid, it signifies the period the works under copyright were created. Duration of copyright is fixed in law and rather longer than 10 years, whether the copyright holder likes it or not. They can, of course, grant others permission to use the work in question, but this does not mean the copyright has expired, and AFAIK in most western countries an author can not decide when their own copyrights expire.

Anyhow, no problem since you have permission to post these.

which of the 3 files should I print?

If you print as one piece, keep an eye on it. I tried a few months ago and ended up with a birds nest. With so many overhangs there is a high chance something will go wrong, so multiple parts would be a good idea.

yep i got the permissions of mr Gershon Elber

apart the copyright pb, there is no way to print it in one piece without support ....which will be a pain in the neck to remove

lot of work to do on this

 shouldnt be too hard to slice it in parts and glue it afterwards.

If this is copyrighted why publish it here?

yzorg on Nov 26, 2012 said:

 there are several forms of copyrights

I'd love to print one of these...but since it's copyrighted - will I guess that rules it out.  Did yzorg get granted copy-right from Gershon Elber? Is it ok to print?
