If actual documents were published well then Irish copyright law would apply
no matter what the media was that they would have been trasmitted in.

If it was a document from MS well the copyright law would pervail. however
if the document was in the public domain and it was quoted as a doc from Ms
well then really they would have a hard agruement so long as it was not
totally riped off.
