Today is a big day for MPEE: We have heard the cries of the American lawyers who want to read MPEE, but who are too virtuous to find a pirated copy on Scribd and too cheap to pay $8.  And we have listened.

Today, we release MPEE under a Creative Commons license (non-commercial, share-alike).

We’ve also posted PDFs of the individual chapters, and are anticipating Spanish, Chinese, Russian, and Portuguese translations in the next months.

Also an EPUB version if we can make a clean one using this seriously underdeveloped standard (and yes, I’m looking at you, Adobe CS5.5, which is supposed to fully support it.)

Finally, this is version 1.0.4, with some corrections.  If you have an old one, please feel free to upgrade.
