Guy, you made some really *excellent* points about how
counter-productive it can be to defend copyright too aggressively.
I am reminded of a 1990s Bill Gates quote about the Chinese pirating M$
As long as they are going to steal it, we want them to steal ours.
They'll get sort of addicted, and then we'll somehow figure out how to
collect sometime in the next decade.
