"...without the expressed written consent of the author..." is correct because
if the author gives permission, he expresses it.

So he not only must write it, but express it *while* he writes it? Does this
mean one can have the written permission of the author *without* the author
"expressing" it? Or perhaps it needs to be written and shipped absolutely,
positively overnight to you?

And what about an author's *im*pressed written consent?

(BTW, in case you haven't guessed, I think the word is "express" rather than
"expressed," and that copyright block is simply a corruption of a phrase
constantly heard but never listened to. Sort of like the variations on the
pledge of allegiance the children say in "Kindergarten Cop.")
