  • Hi gershon,

    Here's the answer from the preface of the book:

    This book is here to help you get your job done. In general, you may use the code in this book in your programs and documentation. You do not need to contact us for permission unless you're reproducing a significant portion of the code. For example, writing a program that uses several chunks of code from this book does not require permission. Selling or distributing a CD-ROM of examples from O'Reilly books does require permission. Answering a question by citing this book and quoting example code does not require permission. Incorporating a significant amount of example code from this book into your product's documentation does require permission.

    We appreciate, but do not require, attribution. An attribution usually includes the title, author, publisher, and ISBN. For example: "C# 3.0 Cookbook, Third Edition, by Jay Hilyard and Stephen Teilhet. Copyright 2008 Jay Hilyard and Stephen Teilhet, 978-0-596-51610-9."

    If you feel your use of code examples falls outside fair use or the preceding permission, feel free to contact us at permissions@oreilly.com.

    I hope this helps. Please let us know if you still have questions.

    Have a great day!
