Aren’t service manuals copyrighted?

I’m just curious about all of the Ebay sellers selling CD ROMs full of printer service manuals in pdf form, some sites even post them for free download.
Where are they getting these pdf’s and isn’t it against the copyright? I thought HP used to crack down on this stuff, is that not the case any more?

PDF's are nicer than hard copies since they are searchable and you can put them on a laptop for on-site service, but I don't know where you can legitimately buy them.
