    More interesting stuff about copyright law in the US


    http://www.nyfairuse.org/

    at the bottom of this page are some interesting things about US copyright law... it is *legal* to copy copyrighted software and give it to your friends *if* no money passes between you, etc. i think the more people that know what can and can not be done the better equipped we will be to fight the coming onslaught of corporate greed...

    Then IRC warez, Bittorent, Kazaa etc should in theory be free for everyone to use? And then BSA and RIAA/MPAA shouldn't bother?
