Arkansas state code

You know what really makes me angry? When things that have no business being under lock and key are put there. When I went looking for the state's tax laws, I was presented with the following message:

Arkansas Code Free Public Access Provided by the Bureau of Legislative Research The Arkansas Code of 1987 is copyrighted by the State of Arkansas. By using this website, the user acknowledges the State's copyright interests in the Arkansas Code of 1987. Neither the Arkansas Code of 1987 nor any portions thereof shall be reproduced without the written permission of the Arkansas Code Revision Commission, except for fair use under the copyright laws of the United States of America, and except that Arkansas Code of 1987 section text, numbering, and lettering may be copied from this website by the user.
Even worse, this is some of the weirdest text I've ever seen - is it non-reproducible, or isn't it. Either way, messages like this one have a chilling effect, and offend me in a very profound manner.
