So by your argument then, if someone publishes a book or other
intellectual information, because i can i should be able to repoduce

Along those same lines, i now have access to a photo-copy machine,
The technology allows me to "record" it, thus i should be able
to......After all that is what it was designed to do....

Also, since my computer is now capable of taking a audio CD and
playing it, and since i have the hardware/software to duplicate it, i
should be able to distribute it, say for free, to anyone who wants a
copy of it. Or perhaps i can make a copy for my car, one for my home,
one for the beach...etc....etc....etc....

I think you logic is flawed, nothing personnel mind you....

Don't be a stranger, if you do I can't get in the car with you...

presentation of a concept or idea seeking general acceptance
is inversely proportional to the number of observers observing
an experiment or project multiplied by a factor of (.5)".
