"Can anyone send me the D80 manual?"


JP
          

I bought my D80 in Japan and, of course, the manual is in Japanese language only. I understand that the English manual was temporarily on the NikonUSA site, but I didn't manage to get a copy at the time.

I've been trying to figure it out just by using looking at the menu, buttons, knobs, dials, etc, but I think I've only figured out about 80% of the features.

Anyone kind soul out there willing to email me a copy of the manual?

Unfortunately, copying the manual, even to try and help out another member, violates Nikon's copyright

Maybe, but not necessarily. Copyright law is very complex.

Nikon states in their manuals that copying and transmission is prohibited without Nikon's prior consent. However I sure that Nikon is aware that the Fair Use Doctrine in the U.S. Copyright Act would allow sharing among interested buyers, much less someone like me who owns the camera.

Other countries copyright laws will vary, but I think the effect is the same.

Has Nikon expressed disapproval to Nikonians.org for this practice in the past? If so, then maybe this is not a legal issue but more of a relationship issue. I can understand that a good relationship with Nikon is an important asset for Nikonians.org.

There was a copy of it online, but I do not see it anymore.

We have taken advice from legal counsel on this point in the past. The view is that we cannot allow Nikonians to be held liable for any copyright infringement, and so we dissuade our members from using the facilities of the site to offer to make, or solicit others to make, copies of Nikon (or other) official documentation.

It may seem that we are being heavy-handed, but that's the way it has to be.
