    Re: Re: Copying TANGIBLES may not be theft...

    You make scale models... Did you buy a kit?

    There are many examples of copyrighted dances. Google Martha Graham and what happened after her death.

    "A copy is not a lost sale' is not a fact. It is a nice statement.

    "The natural function of an idea is to be copied"?! I have no words...

    Playing the national anthem is also invalid.That song is not protected.

    If you play my song in the privacy of your home, I have no issues. If you play it at a public venue and represent it as yours, I would say that is theft.

    As previously stated -Theft and harm can be mutually exclusive.

    Copying TANGIBLES may not be theft...

    Big TD fan for years. Gotta disagree on this.

    Nearly every example given is a tangible item- lollipops for example. But if the expression itself is the item that is copied then copying IS theft. If I write a song or choreograph a dance, by copying you have stolen without taking anything tangible. Wrong/right aside, it is theft. I'm aware of the arguments that 'recording groups are bad', 'copyrights are wrong', 'promotion is good at the end', but I don't buy it here. If someone else sings my song or dances my dance, then how do you argue that is not theft?

    and by 'professional' you mean 'professional sex worker' or 'business professional'?

    Please join the casue to prevent these horrible events from ever happening again!

    I was saddedned to hear about the horrible giraffe massacre, and hope that my contribution will provide additional giraffe security and pay your legal bills for those bastards that dared make fun of your precious bestiality sanctuary. I will be cancelling my birthdy party immediately for fear of future bestly incidents. Enclosed please find my utter disgust, a large amoutn of condecension, and fourteen ROFLs to send to the families of those that sacrificed their lives to this horrible, mean event. I truly hope your business does not suffer due to the fact that you take free publicity and spend my hard earned money on lawyers instead of giraffe training classes.

    Dumbasses.

    Yeah, but...

    1. She's not paying for the lawyers - incompetent as they are.
    2. Worst case, she declares bankruptcy and owes jack.
    3. Hunt down her parents and ask them WTF they were on when they NAMED THEIR CHILD, and send me some to smoke after my long day.
