    soggy never covered this bit...

    ... too busy trolling, misrepresenting and spinning, i guess, that's ok - with all the above responsibilities, i understand he's a busy guy.

    but some response (besides "the dick"'s) would be appreciated.


    so let's try again:

    copyright laws, like every other law are subject to jurisdiction. i feel theirs (what i know of them) are skewed too far in one direction, and ours are skewed too far in the other.

    personally, i don't like the concept of that particular site very much.

    but let's recast your question a bit, to wit, you said:

    >>>Do you feel that people should be able to bypass the GPL and linux copyrights in the same way that many f/oss zealots advocate bypassing music copyrights?<<<

    firstly, i'll note that your statement regarding "many f/oss zealots" is unsupported, unfair and incendiary, but your bullshit aside, since you seem you imply that you don't like using laws in various other jurisdictions to your advantage, i have to ask:

    do you feel corporations should be able to bypass u.s. tax laws the way microsoft does by using the tax laws in ireland?

      No Dan. But you don't want to learn and admit the truth. The reason for that is beyond reason. I.e. I don't expect reasoned thought from you, you're mentally challenged.

      Keep saying it while I go have a nice evening: "I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did. I did.

      I'm sure it will make you feel just dandy, all there by yourself.

      Click - you're the one who didn't know the definition of a free market. I did.

      Thus, since I know more than you... and you believe me to be a retard... what does that say about your opinion of yourself?

    • << It's going to be one of those "who you gonna believe, Zogdan or your own eyes" questions. >>


      What do you mean? I clearly posted the definition of free markets. Look at it with your own "eyes."

      And you'll note - there is absolutely no reference to property laws anywhere.

      No need to take my word for it at all. Please! Use your own eyes!

    • << Laws, or no laws. That's the question I put to you. >>

      Laws that protect property are fine and necessary.

      Laws that try to regulate or subsidize the free market are absolutely not needed, and do more harm than good.

      I say that because I support Free Markets.

      You, on the other hand, favor government regulation of the market... and therefore you are, by definition, AGAINST free markets.

      :)

      You prevaricate hourly. So what do you want this hour, anarchy? Make up your mind.

      Laws, or no laws. That's the question I put to you.

    • "Government regulation of the market" = the Law.

      You moron.

    • <Well, at least you admit that you avoid answering my questions.>

      Liar.

    • << >>Are you admitting that you don't think Free Markets are "fair"... and that's why you don't support them?<<

      There's limits to freedom. >>

      Hey - at least Musty admits that he's not in favor of free markets.

      The rest of you socialists should take a cue from him.

      :)
