I have been informed by Don Peterson of Data Professionals
that they have purchased intellectual rights to all Heathkit manuals. I have
been told to remove the manuals for download or sale. I have received
confirmation of his legal rights and I will begin removing the manual
hyperlinks for download. Please see his email below.
This is a sad day for us all!!!
Checkout this site some manuals are there
Gary H. Harmon Jr./ K5JWK has a large number
of manuals he will loan. He can be reached at
firstname.lastname@example.org. See the manual
file for a list. These are actual manuals NOT PDF files!!
|On October 30, 2008, Data Professionals of Pleasanton, CA purchased the

Benton Harbor, Michigan. This rights to these legacy products also includes
the copyright. It is our intent to service the secondary Heathkit market by
providing manual copies, spare parts, and repair service.|
| To this end, I am asking that you please refrain from advertising,
selling, copying, and distributing any of these legacy Heathkit manuals.|

discussing a royalty agreement to continue the advertising, selling,
copying, and distribution of any legacy Heathkit manuals, I may be open to
such an agreement. |

There is a possibility that all manuals prior
to 1964 may be public domain if Heathkit did not renew the copyright on them.
There is no way to search online but a physical check of the copyright at the
Library of congress is necessary. I have included the web site with information
