Carl Malamud and Public.Resource.Org, Inc. is at work again, freeing what should be free. He has purchased the Code of Federal Regulations from GPO and is making it publicly available without charge. This is the raw, SGML and images version that GPO sells for over $17,000. Carl says:
Our intent in purchasing this product is to make it available in raw format on the Internet for access by anonymous FTP. We will not charge for access, nor will we restrict usage by the imposition of any license agreements. Since public documents are defined as “public property” in 44 USC 1119, this deployment of the raw feed of the Code will make it available for all to use without restriction and will allow for-profit and non-profit entities to construct alternative versions of the CFR.
