Disturbingly, most academic publishers—including the non-profit organizations, ACM and IEEE—coerce and even arm-twist authors into transferring copyrights to the publisher as a precondition to publish the paper. Thanks to this malpractice, my co-authors and I do not hold the copyright for most of the papers above. In simpler words, we don’t own the papers we wrote, and cannot give them to you just because we wrote them.

Thankfully, the fair use clause of the U.S. copyright law explicitly permits you to reproduce these papers “for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research”. (More information on copyright issues.)

In other words, feel free to download, copy and give away (but not sell) these papers for non-profit educational purposes. May the force be with you.
