As you may know, Bassam Kurdali's excellent ManCandy FAQ DVD is published (like everything else the Blender Institute produces) under a Creative Commons license. Among other things, this means you're free to distribute or download it. Some people did this and the reactions were, well, not good. I talked to Bassam to find out how he felt about us offering download links.
Yes, I'm clearly fine with it - I think I may have commented in the blendernation thread. I got private emails from people asking for permission, and said "go ahead". It's unfortunate that so many people in blenderartists yelled at one poor kid for putting up a link, to the point that he took it down! I replied both directly and via pm to him saying it was quite ok, but I think the damage had already been done.
So, as even the creator confirms it's okay to share the content, I looked for downloads and found the following two, I hope you'll enjoy them!
Of course, if you can afford it and you'd like to support the Blender Institute, we encourage you to purchase the original DVDÂ from the Blender e-shop! Additional advantages: the official DVD has straight bits instead of wobbly ones and it won't make your computer eat all the food in the fridge at night.
