Restricted data on the Shady Library

The Shady Library project has officially commenced. I have been learning a lot about copyrights, and certian hosting company's policies. I had my first brush with automated "copyright police" today, as I was posting my collection of Dune books by Frank Herbert.

It turns out that MediaFire is a lot more intelligent than I've given them credit for, and they scanned my pdfs as I uploaded them. The pdfs got the "BAD BOY" sticker, so I had to upload them using a little cleverness. I finally got them to be publicly available by stuffing each book in its own zip folder. It doesn't look like MediaFire scans the contents of zips, so I should be okay.

Have fun with the content!
