When I find a book I often pick it up with the intention of reading for just 15 minutes but if it's well written with a good story I'm hooked for hours. My children are the same, it is high time the powers that be stepped in and banned these insidious devices!
Why is this restricted to artists? I want to see it in sport!
In 1968 Dick Fosbury set a new highjump world record using a revolutionary technique, surely no-one else should be allowed to copy him for free until he's been dead for 75 years!
Footballers (Soccer players to Americans) should not be allowed to "Bend it Like Beckham" unless they are playing for his team, if your pitcher comes up with a new pitch rival teams shouldn't benefit for free.
And not just sports! How about typing comments on websites, if someone has had this idea already surely I should have to pay them!
