Re: [dvd-discuss] Court Sides With Geac in Mainframe Software Case

OH BOY just think what a money making opportunity there! The school ebooks 
can be timed to not be accessible after the last day of each school year. 
THe students will love them because they can take them home and use them 
as frizbees. The administrators will love them because they won't have to 
collect them and the taxpayers will love them because they have to keep 
buying them anew each year!.....ONly the LAUSD would love a scheme like 
that...not wonder Lomita keeps trying to succeed from it.

                 Geez, I guess all those book covers my teachers forced me 
make in grade school were infringing, too. (Even worse, they were an
aftermarket change that increased the potential lifespan of the
textbook, no doubt depriving the copyright holder of additional
revenue they would otherwise have been able to extort from the classes
after me...)
