With all due respect, may I suggest that this list is precisely the sort of
resource necessary for tracking down copyright ownerships?
After all, we do have a good number of subscribers who were there at the ealry
stages of Unix(R)(T[F]M). (I wasn't - I was a high-schoold student at Deakin
High, Canberra at the time Prof Lions was writing his Commentary, and the
nearest _we_ got to computers was an Apple II we got in 1978 - and it was
mostly used for games. ;) Sad but true. ;^)
I'm sure we're up to it. Just ask us.

I reply, it is people, it is people, it is people.
