[David Lawrence] "Andy, with all due respect, it's a bit more complicated then your analogy."

David, this isn't just a digital thing. By the reasoning of the cartoon, several centuries of copyright law should be voided. I think that's a ridiculous proposition. Its true that "theft of intellectual property" is an abstract idea, but it is an idea that I value very much. I truly appreciate the notion that, if I write a novel, most modern societies recognize that a transcribed or xeroxed copy of my novel is NOT separate in identity from my work product. It took centuries to create international laws to protect authors, and I'm grateful that we have them.
