Thank you, John. Of course, I can see how this can be a never ending
set of legal tests - illegal in USA and Canada but legal in India
(where you can replace India with any other locale) then host on
Indian server.

Wondering if there is a better way! And, if Commons can at least
search the meta data from this Canadian archive and possible future
other archives.
