Re: (Fwd) Re: [dvd-discuss] What does Philips know that wedon't

Congress can create the Digital Millenium Solar Cell Act (DMSCA) and 
require that royalties be paid to the Oil industry for every solar cell 
manufactured and sold and amend the patent law for just this case so that 
the monopoly on solar cells extends for 120yrs.....

As for new markets...who would have thought that little sheets of paper 
with a sticky glue on the back would be great business.

They much to respect about that.  Last I checked, there's no shortage of
interesting and difficult problems to solve (and markets to make).  Now
if we could only get cheap solar cells...
