I have to wonder what the term "copyrighted" means in this particular case.
Does it mean that if I use their methods, the page layout in my manuals
belongs to them? Do I have to pay royalties for any publication produced
using their techniques? Does it mean that if I happen to produce a document
on my own which resembles their approach to documentation, they'll sue me?
Does it mean that even if I read Horn's book, I'm not free to adopt any of
his techniques?

Oh goodie.

Have Fun,
