We bought copies of the ISO standards. Would it be OK to scan them into our mainframe computer and make them available to employee computers as "read only?" They would not be able to download them to print. Have others done this? Need your thought?
As always, thanks in advance.

Re: Reading ISO Standards from computers

Do whatever, but realistically the vast majority of employees have no need to access and read the standard. Waste of time and effort, time would be better spent reading your organization documentation that applies to them

You had asked this question way back in 2003 and there are some great suggestions in there :)

Can I put ISO Standards on our Company Intranet?

check what your copyright says. If it's an individual license, then networking is not allowed, but it may be possible if you restrict to read only by a single user at the time.
Quite true. I have even seen where a company/country sells a .pdf file which can be downloaded and read on only one computer, and to add to that it allowed for 1 printout only. I know because I bought one once and tried to print it out. The printout failed yet the document was in some way then "marked" so it would not allow me to print a copy even though the first time I tried to print it it failed to print. I think that was a standard I bought from Standards of Australia probably 12 or more years ago. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper.
