I recently purchased this Copy-Q v3.0 disk and it came with a manual.
I already had versions: v1.1, v2.0, v2.1, but not this version.
The manual is small and the text is even SMALLER, I had to scan it in just
to read it, so here it is: the Copy-Q Manual
The ECHO was developed by Jim Drew.
The Echo and it’s software was released before the Shadow (Megasoft)
The Echo software also because the Supercard version
From Jim Drew, “ECHO was sold for about 6 months or so (through my company called “UnderWare”) before it was renamed as Supercard and sold through Utilities Unlimited, a spin-off company that Reggie created due to the Shadow disaster which destroyed Megasoft. UnderWare had ads in Compute!, RUN, and several other magazines. I sold ECHO, X-RAY (a density display), and a few other products. ”
Double Dribble disk did not contain any on disk copy protection.
BUT instead uses a manual/code book look-up. (SEE Below for the photos)

Then I convert to B/W with Photoshop so you can print it out:
