thanks i am condamned to lead a miserable life under one of those
half-communist regimes down here in older europe, i do not have the freedom
of choice to pay someone who is "smart" enough to "purchase" a patent for
something as trivial as recording a CD during a Gig an burn some copies
Why not "purchasing" a "patent" for let us say ... using glass for
Windowspanes - everyone, who wants to see the sun again, would have to pay me
BTW: since last year, it is getting better in old Germany - now we have a law
against software, that can be used to break CD-copy-protection. As i see
cdparanoia ripping the latest Johnny Cash and a very recent Beethoven/Abbado
CD, i remember that tools like that are illegal now. But nobody dares to
enforce such crudities for now...

I will not, as long as you have paid the licencefees for the usage of
Internetlinks, CAPITAL-letters and the "P.S."- abbreviature...
