The TeX Live CD image is already available TeX archive sites, in
systems/texlive, so of course you can copy that locally if you wish.

My wish is that the CD image does NOT become widely advertised, for
two reasons:

 - its a horrible huge great lump to send around the network all the
 - if local TeX user groups supply it to members or others, they can
   do support, publicize TeX, make a tiny bit of money etc
I follow the attitude of the Debian people on this. You *can* download
and burn your own CD, there are no restrictions. But getting a
nicely-made copy from a local group is preferred.

of course, if you act as a local TeX user group, thats fine on all counts.
