 that is fascinating to note that the term "copyright" in your country
is already viewed as being a 20th / 21st century means by which people
may be enslaved, and that they actually recognise that and reject it
so vehemently.  how, then, do you think people in your country would
react to the *even stronger* and *even more* insidious enslavement
phrase, "intellectual property"?

 the only reason that i support copyright (at all) is that it is the
means of enforcement of collaboration by way of the GNU General Public
License. if it wasn't for this ***WISE*** usage of the term
"copyright" i would be doing everything that i can to advocate the
abolisment of information-enslavement, outright, world-wide.

 in effect, for the 21st century, we need completely different laws, now.
