    Not a hoax, not a joke! (Well, his creators don't think it's a joke
    anyways...) This is the official mascot of a Canadian program to
    "educate" school kids and teachers on the importance of intellectual
    property and why you MUST NOT MUST NOT MUST NOT EVER DOWNLOAD
    COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL FROM THE INTERNET BECAUSE IT IS EVIL AND BAD AND
    THEY DON'T LIKE IT! You don't want to be like Lex Luthor, do you?

    Yes children, it is FAR more honorable to run up phone and internet
    bills for $100's (that your parents pay) by downloading songs at
    $1.00/ea (notice how that's about the same price as a CD, but you get
    no real CD??) for your iPods. The monopolistic "you know whats" who
    have run the music business for 50 years are really angry you are
    buying video games instead, er, I mean, that they don't have a monopoly
    anymore, er, I MEAN, that you seem to have turned away from buying
    CDs!!!

    Well, yes, but since using that image is not a violation of copyright
    or trademark, it's not illegal, even if it does violate the *spirit*
    of trademark and copyright law with respect to DC Comics' property.

    Yeah, not like here (US) where the music and movie industry uses the FBI
    as their storm troopers to help protect their profits.

    If you owned a grocery store, wouldn't you want the local police to
    stop people from stealing from you? What's the difference? FBI is
    charged with policing copyright infringement.

    Stop acting braindead!
    Your analogy sucks kosher mouse-doodles, Jim.

    Nobody is stealing groceries in your example. Your grocery store claims
    to have a copyright on vegetables, and is trying to prevent folks from
    growing their own veggies! In their own backyards.

    Get out of my garden, toad. ;!)
    ... and take your cops with you -- or is that CROPS!?

    ha! Winfield

    No, they're not trying to prevent anyone from doing anything but
    stealing. What grocer has any control over the veggies in other
    grocers' markets? None.

    What they're trying to do is stop you from breaking open a cucumber,
    stealing all the seeds, and planting your own crop, without paying the
    grocer for his original cucumber.

    How is that NOT stealing? Please explain it in terms other than "I want
    free music."

    It may suck to you since you want what you want and no one's gonna stop
    you from getting it. What are you? Twelve? Can you not grasp the idea
    of property rights of something you can't hold in your hand. You'd
    better get back to work then, that lady might want fries with that.

    Surely you are aware of Region codes used by the movie barons. Isn't
    that the grocers we are discussing?

    > What they're trying to do is stop you from breaking open a cucumber,

    Wrong. Cucumber bought and paid for.

    > How is that NOT stealing? Please explain it in terms other than "I want
    > free music."


    Technology has blind-sided your puppet masters, Cardinal Sin. Judgement
    day has come upon them. Why are you quaking in your boots?

    Forcing people to go back to slower computers, smaller hard-drives and
    dialup modems would virtually stop movie & music sharing as we know it
    today. Oh, and DVD/CD burners would cetainly have to become illegal to own.

    Maybe that's a better compromise then the police state you pine for?
    The private police state of the Hollywood Goldberg's & Silversteins you
    yearn for.

    Copyright holders are not gods.
    My personal freedoms, privacy and being able to watch television
    without going to jail for 15 years trump their pathetic "rights" any day
    of the week.
