that they own,within reason.


There are local variations in laws, but most countries (including both the UK and the US, so I'm speaking for both of us here) are signatories of the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works. The Berne Convention backs up the points I made above.

You want me to give you the facts? I have a copy of the Berne convention here (as well as a copy at work) and what I wrote was fact, not opinion -- but you'll to take my word on that, unless you have a copy handy. You'll have to forgive me for not typing it out here for you -- it's 28 pages long emoticon

My point is that it will never be stopped.



Actually, according to my list here, Thailand adopted the Berne Convention (with some restrictions) on July 13th 1931.

But you're right, there are countries where there are no copyright laws.

Is this wrong? Yes. Creators of a work of art (music, writing, picture, etc.) should be rewarded for their work, no matter what country it's sold in.

It will never be stopped? What kind of pro-argument is that? We will never eradicate murder from our society, either. That doesn't make it right.

Re: Copy Protection


There is a big difference
between murder and theft
right or wrong.
I know that there is no such law's in Thailand
as I have plenty of recording's from that country.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Let me take this oppritunity to say
that I DO NOT DOWNLOAD AND BURN ANY COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL(.)

I do however DL and BURN some bootleg material that has no
copyright and that is not any worse than any of the people
that record the stuff without permission themselve's
and I find that to be within my constitutional right.

I also copy official cd's FOR THE PURPOSE OF
making it listenable in full surround on my computer with
6.1 built into my motherboard.Playing through default player,I suppose that is against the law too.
If I didn't I would only be hearing out of 2 speaker's.
I baught it so I bloody well use it.I also have that right.
-----------------------------------------------------------

and as you turn
don't look away
the Spanish Archer's
gonna make you paaaaaaaaaaay!
