Use Of COMPUTE! Programs

Concerning the "Readers' Feedback" of September 1983, you stated that the programs in COMPUTE! are not in the public domain, and that only people who own a specific issue of COMPUTE! can have access to the programs in that issue. My question is, what if a computer club takes out a subscription to COMPUTE!? Would that club be allowed to place those programs in those issues in its library for all members? And what if a school or public library takes out a subscription? Could everyone who is allowed access to the library be allowed access to those programs in those issues?

Gary Lee Crowell

Sorry, the answer in each case is no. You can only use the programs in an issue of COMPUTE! if you own a copy of that issue.
