I really do think that this aspect is key. And for me, it's not just a one-way street. I won't steal something I plan on selling and I won't offer for free the content that other people are selling. I think it'd prolly be unethical to do otherwise. My solution is that I keep my marketable stuff separate from the costless. If someone steals my free stuff, I don't mind. I think it's kinda funny if they do it without the slightest attribution. However, if I find someone stealing my livelihood, then I will be quick to bring down the Danish hammer upon them. I think Metallica's right to be angry, but I don't see any easy solutions to piracy. Pax out, The Dane
