Hmmm...a very interesting thread.  At least it got the manufacturer's
attention!  But I would argue that the owners of the Shandon instrument
already have a previous legal right to the manual (although missing) because
they bought a copy of the manual when they bought the instrument.  But then
again, I'm not a lawyer.

It's really a question of business philosophy, I think, and whether it's worth
going after a customer for copyright infringement because they copied a manual
or received a copy of a manual.  This would definitely *not* be a wise
decision for any manufacturer.  Can you say, "Lost Business," boys and girls?
