Schematics and the DMCAhobo sapiens (893427) writes "I am considering launching a website that contains information on vintage and modern guitar and bass guitar tube amplifiers. The site will include schematics, board layouts (important because many of these aren't PCBs), general information, user-submitted pictures, and user-submitted sound clips. I mainly want to stick to vintage and out of production amps, but I'd also be willing to post information on current production models.
I know there are other sites on the web that contain the same schematics I will be hosting, but none that also have photos and sound clips and data sheets.
I do not want to flagrantly disrespect copyrights, at the same time, I want to provide a useful service to technicians and folks perhaps considering a purchase. I don't think user generated data will cause legal trouble, but I am slightly worried about schematics and most worried about circuit board layouts (I will not be posting PCB layouts, only layouts for old hand wired amps). Is there anyone familiar with DCMA law regarding such a venture or anyone with similar past experience who foresees legal problems?"
