    "Open Letter on Copyrights"

    Saw this on slashdot.. what a laugh....
    I especially like this bit:
    The 1976 Act grew out of Congressional recognition that the United States was rapidly lagging behind Japan and other countries in technology innovation. In order to protect our ability to innovate and regain global leadership in technology, Congress extended copyright protection to technology innovations, including software. The 1976 Act had the desired effect. The U.S. economy responded rapidly, and within 10 years had regained global technology leadership.
    Oh, what a pitty. someones better than you so you have to make a law so you can be better and no one else is alowed to

    GROW the fuck UP!

    And SCO is saying that if we support the GPL, we are putting the US economy at risk. :

    Mabey that was the economy then, but the GPL in my opinion only serves to benifit us all, programmers/users(anyone I forgot )
