Copying FoG is a nono I understand but I thought seeing as there are people here who understand the lagality of the issue I might as well ask this question.
The major opposition to FoG in South Africa argues that the books are too expensive (yet I own 4 list books so far and the rules) and that rules and lists should be free. They build on this arguement as a base to photocopy/ electronically store DBM which they rate is legal as;
a) 3.1 was never published
b) the DBM army list books are out of print (so can apparently be copied and distributed as long as it is for free).
Is this correct? I am sure that the copyright is still held by Mr Barker and RBS. I am also aware that the books are still available from certain vendors and as such it cannot be argued that they are not available to the public.
Feedback would be appreciated

This allows me to throw a spanner in their works with a ruleset that is easily available and for which you pay a reasonable price (for a colour copy) as opposed to a ruleset that is not in colour, not as much fun and hardr to get hold of
