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. I have received confirmation of his legal rights and I have removed  the manual hyperlinks for download. Please see his email below.

This is a sad day for us all!!!

Heathkit copyright and license purchase document

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 here.
