AIX documentation

 Well I recently retired and was asked to return all training materials to my employer. I refused as the contracts included in the front of the books clearly stated that these were licenced to me personally not to whoever paid for the course, and were not to be passed to any one else, including my employer. I wonder if they would have sent me if they known? If the materials are meant to be so licenced I would expect them to include a specific reference to the licence some where at the front. In the case of AIX as folks are still running AIX courses I suspect that releasing them to the public may not be legal...
