 Why is being on the web w/ a copyright notice in the text any different
than a CD copy?

 This is to be expected.  There are so many lectures going on at the same
time, that for every one we attend there may be 3 that we try for the
handouts.  Also, some of the more popular ones are "sold out" very quickly,
so we have to be content w/ only a handout.  Maybe the answer is to
pre-copy the usual number and have several centrally located, high speed
laser printers to print out any number of copies on demand.  The s/b a
networked computer in each session room to generate the copies.
