Here's the line of line of posts my first post was responding to:
Personally, I just want to print out my own copy - with a cover, incidentally - so I have a ‘complete’ game with the Starter set. But say I was to distribute other copies to my players so they can prep, would this be illegal then?
Technically, yes. But you'll get away with it, and they really should explicitly give permission for that. But it's illegal, yes. Can they not download it themselves?
At the moment it’s conjecture anyway - but I don’t assume to know what access they have to computers and printing facilities.
It's possible that I'm wrong, but this doesn't look like TrippyHippy (getting it right this time!) is talking about posting the Basic PDF on a POD server.It's not conjecture. If you don't know if they've given you permission to do something, they haven't. It's really easy.
You'll know when they give you permission to print and sell their property.
No conjecture. No guessing.
