    media

    Hi,
    I have no idea what the word 'media' in the sentence below could mean.

    Reuse or reproduction of this media, in whole or in part, for any other purpose than that for which it was intended is prohibited.

    And what does to be issued mean?
    Revisions to the construction documents may be issued following release of this information. The architect is not obligated to provide an updated electronic form of this document.

    Thanks

    Technically, the correct word would be "medium" as media is the plural form (but, strangely, accepted as the singular form). In this case, it would mean an object or device on which data is stored (think DVD, CD-ROM, etc.)

    The architect has prohibited certain media (from your previous posts this is probably the electronic CAD drawings) from being copied for sale or other use.

    The architect may revise the documents, but is not required to update the electronic plans.
