    I just checked and there are a ton of codes in there from all over the country. I don't see how it is legal to make these available for free.

      All the codes should be free if there the law.
      If it is mandated by the state or the feds the laws should be free to access, PERIOD.
      The most it should cost is jsut for the paper and the time.

      That is part of the problems there is a profit and private companies making money off the laws, and so why not "add to the law", ever X number of years, with out code revisions there is no sale, it is profit so they add to the code needed or not jsut to sell the books.

      I bet if the cost was limited to the cost of just production at a GOVERNMENT Printing office, that the codes would hardly change, except for lobbied new products to be added for approval, and most of those could be an addendum. Ever change cost the system millions.

            Unfortunatly most code books are copywrited and can not be copied, or reproduced without permission. Hell, if you could get it all on line it would put the PHCC out of business.

              Does this mean the some government official is going to come after me for burning a DVD?

              Hold on, there's someone banging on my front door.............

                Let's remember the "KING" here is not the Government it is the Organization which develops and promote the Codes. How do you plan to fund these Organizations once you take their income away? I guess we could have them become a Federal Agency as we all know how well the Feds run things.

                If you have ever purchased a book or movie of any kind you understand the price of producing the media has little to do with the cost of producing the information.

                          Here is the country at large codes: http://bulk.resource.org/codes.gov/


                          For California Specific Codes go here: http://bulk.resource.org/codes.gov/ca.local/

                          Though I'm not sure I agree with it in this manner, I do agree with all plumbers having access to it when they need it....

                          The cool part is they are all in PDF format so I now have them loaded on my Palm Phone

                              The PDF that I downloaded was a scanned version and won't let me search by topic.
