has someone nailed down the definition of "duplicating"?
(is this a known quantity, legally?)
If I read a book, have I "duplicated" it in my brain (chemically)? What if I have a great memory, and can type it out anytime I want to?
I am now like google books,right? a tool that might assist in the infringement act?
... I don't see it. don't agree.
Technically, isn't scanning a book the process of interpreting light into quantity of electricity? Is it "duplicating" to turn physical ink-on-paper into a virtual string-of-bits?
Feel like I'm missing the point (and maybe some precedents), but can't think on it further than this.
