Definitely 'for real'.  There's been a suggestion Agilent were not 
happy with the quality of some of the BAMA offerings, quite apart from 
the copyright issue. They may have felt it reflected badly on them. 
Could be a linkage there, who knows?
There's also a report that a large test equipment manual collection 
(of old HP stuff) belonging to an Agilent employee has been borrowed 
to be scanned and pdf files for these manuals will be available from 
the Agilent website in due course.
