If I understand it correctly, she's saying that she owns the scans she 
made and that you have to respect her ownership of the scans, not the 
art.  If you want to redistribute the art, you have to hunt down the 
sources yourself and do your own scans.

If I'm not misinformed, she's within her legal rights to impose that 
restriction and it's not incompatible with PD because it relates to the 
scans themselves, not the PD artworks.
