I can verify that, at least for the Old Irish pdf file.  I did a search today, 
and found the same file on an Irish language site, the file's name being 
slightly different, but it was exactly the same once I opened it and took a 
look.

Of course, if you want to sit and shiver in terror of innumerable people such 
as Henry Sweet sending the lawyers around, be my guest.  Now that would be a 
horror story worth reading - the long-deceased, in response to the urgings of 
the RIAA and the MPAA, sent an equally deceased lawyer around to extract 
fines from the living who are downloading his books.  There were some serious 
problems - the judge who was to pass judgement, fled in terror when the 
deceased appeared to arraign the living, and got run over by a bus.  The 
living downloaders, hung themselves to escape the attention of the dead 
plainftiffs, and thus took a different perspective on the whole thing.  The 
lawyers for the defense, took up holy orders ... ;)
