Hello All,

If you are still interested in copyright you may want to peruse this
article;

www.arl.org/scomm/copyright/uses.html

Part of it states:

   FAIR USE IN THE ELECTRONIC AGE:
   SERVING THE PUBLIC INTEREST

The primary objective of copyright is not to reward the labor of authors,
but "[t]o promote the Progress of Science and useful
Arts." To this end, copyright assures authors the right to their original
expression, but encourages others to build freely upon the
ideas and information conveyed by a work. This result is neither unfair
nor unfortunate. It is the means by which copyright advances
the progress of science and art.

 -- Justice Sandra Day O'Connor (Feist Publications, Inc. v. Rural
 Telephone Service Co., 499 US 340, 349(1991)

Makes for some interesting reading.

Later,
Tom
