Explain who either of these situations would give YOU the right to make
copies of someone else's work and sell them.

It's hardly easy to make money by SELLING what is available for FREE.
Sure, it happens. There are a few places on the internet where you can
pay to download something (like an owner's manual) that is available FOR
FREE on the manufacturer's website. Since the manufacturer in this case
makes it available for free, they aren't really ripping off the
manufacturer, but I'd say they are ripping off the consumer.
