Thread Name: Sale of DT intellectual property?
Subject: RE: Sale of DT intellectual property?
This just illustrates the larger context of which our dealings with HFA are only a small part. There is a global war on over the use of information that can be accessed, copied, and used electronically by almost anyone. Its a squatters mentality where the rule seems to be 'take whatever you want until somebody tells you otherwise'. Its no accident that HFA is treating us like pirates. They're clients are so overwhelmed by actual internet piracy that they don't have the luxury of figuring out who's really a pirate and who's not.

Look at this guy in England, and think of how much time and effort it would take to just find out if he's stolen Dick's stuff, then to prove it in court. By the time you were through, it might not even matter.
