@ymcpa73 and rationale: you proved my point. Thanks for clarifying it for the dimwits. There are other ways to generate revenue than the stale methods employed by the DMCA and the Copyright Police.

Besides, most of the monies generated by those who fight tooth and nail to protect their 'Intellectual Property" end up in the pockets of the monopolies and large corporations who appropriated those rights, not the creators. I know for a fact. Just ask any musician where most of the money from record sales go.

The whole "Intellectual Property" debate is fueled by greed and tyranny. Nothing else. Great to have Scott get in the debate with humor.

Asok may well find all his money going to copyright lawyers to get guys like Wally. Wally, it seems, elevates his thinking to new higher levels of the ascerbic when eating AND drinking coffee...If Wally ever learns how to play Texas Hold'em Poker he will make more than enough money to leave the company....

No, I hadn't missed the irony. You can always trust Dilbertworld to be more complex than it looks at first glance.

It's typical of Scott's sense of humour (and view of human nature) that this situation is bringing out everyone's inner weasel. On which point, I don't know if it has crossed anyone else's mind that Asok had better have read his contract with Dogbert publishing #very# carefully. ;)

He came up with the idea of making a book from PHB sayings. PHB didn't.

I hope everyone here realizes that Asok is selling a book full of things that he didn't come up with. What is the difference between Asok taking quotes from the PHB without permission or royalty and Wally downloading the book without permission or royalty?
