No doubt the parasites in the three-piece suits are at bay,
salivating, licking their chops. After all the net is a wonderful
new source of revenue. We are such a litigious society already.
Why even think about screwing up a good thing? No doubt our own
paranoia (someone is going to steal my words) is going to make
it easy for them.

For the record, I use info from the net regularly. I don't quote--
not intentionally anyway, but I use ideas. Which is worse? Stealing
an idea and not giving credit, or quoting the source?
