You definitely need to contact the other company for permission unless the
information is extremely short and can fall under the "fair use" provisions
of the copyright law.

1. Copy the instructions directly from the other companies manuals - just
the relevant parts and nothing else.
Problems: I don't know whether I can legally do this. Do I need to ask those
companies' permission, or just put a note in that these have been copied? I
am writing in the UK, but copying from US manuals intended for a US
audience. My product is intended for a US audience.
