I don't think anybody who's in or near the business can disagree with *that* 
statement (or the rest of Laurie's post, FTM, which I'm not including here).

It seems to me that the latest US "Copyright Law" (and other IP decisions) 
as convoluted and in places compex as they are, favor the "pickpocket" and 
"locksmith" (to extend Laurie's metaphor) more than the person who created 
the property in the first place.
