Sadly, this is not a legal forum (and I'm glad it is not... I'm Tangor, a recovering webmaster) and legal discussions can be quite confusing, premature, inappropriate, inapplicable, boring, exciting, crazy... Unfortunately theft is theft and even the thieves know that, regardless of which country they live in. There are two things large in the world these days (which most will recognize as being LARGE): the US Government and HOLLOWOOD (sic). It is HOLLOWOOD (sic) which pulls the strings, pays the lobbyists, etc. so this will not go away because the thieves do not go away and any of us who are not thieves of content know that... and those of us who are thieves of content know that, too. Software comes in second at several billion dollars per year...TOO!
This "Not a Grab, but Statement of Fact" is something I think should be done... but having lived 60 years under the beneficence of the "gubbermint" (sic) I know that fellow from the government come to help me is going to screw the pooch somewhere along the line. So, this question will get traction, will probably happen sometime in the future--and should--but will also have collateral damage along the way. It is the latter part that makes me queasy.
