The reason the CDs (or copies of the originals) are cheap on Ebay is because

format. I've never seen CDs for other manufacturers but I'm sure they exist.
I've never heard of copyright problems with the CDs\DVDs being sold but keep

The 1992 CD is no longer available from Helm, but I did a search for 1999
