    Will they sue the inevitable thousands of people who during election campaigns will use their logo to either campaign for or against them. Also if they are the current ruling party they are currently the people who are letting it happen whether it was a previous government that agreed the export licences or not.

    The television and internet are just tools to be used how you wish. How you use them will determine what you get from them. Universities undoubtedly make people smarter but during my first year in one I didn't use it for it's designed purpose, I used it more to research certain chemicals (I studied Civil Engineering) getting drunk and chasing girls and I'm certain that first year I got dumber. Similarly if you only use television to watch Big Brother or watch Ricky Gervais play the same character in different settings, or only use the internet to watch porn you'll probably get dumber. Tools can't make you anything it's all about how you use them!

    Makes sense to me as I've been introduced to a lot of books over the years after seeing the movie first. So I know the main plot but still really enjoy the book. More often that not I enjoy it more than the movie.
