Where can I find a legal copy of the ISO SQL 2008 standard?

You need to purchase it. I don't think you can get (the interesting parts) for free. –  a_horse_with_no_name Feb 14 '13 at 16:09

The official and final texts are only available by purchase.

The drafts, otoh, are often no more than a google search away. Google for SQL200n.zip and you should get pretty close.

The ISO SQL 2008 Standard document ISO/IEC 9075-1:2008 Information technology -- Database languages -- SQL -- Part 1: Framework (SQL/Framework) is now freely available from the ISO website.

Unfortunately, it's only Part-1. The most valuable part is Part-2, where all DDL, DML and DCL statements are described. –  ypercube Feb 14 '13 at 15:44
    
@ypercube maybe they're still drafting Part-2? ¯(°_o)/¯ –  swasheck Feb 14 '13 at 16:05
