I routinely include in all my books a statement that all source code is in
the public domain and may be used, reused, and modified freely without
permission or attribution. I consider that one of the prime benefits of
buying the books. I certainly hope readers find my book useful, and want to
reuse the code they find there. I also want to avoid getting besieged with
constant requests for permission to use some three line bit of JavaScript.
It's not likely any book example is likely to be a multimillion dollar
