Uhm, you must have a different history book than I do.
Well they say you learn something everyday.

You'll certainly find these enlightening then.

A Pirates Dilemma

Trade Secrets
I could only take ~ the first 15 minutes of this film, because it was obvious that it's purpose was to discuss piracy in general, particularly in terms of the modern issue. He did make one statement concerning the "founding" of the USA, in terms of copyrights, but the only examples that he gave were instances that came along much later than the revolution, and were poorly constructed in terms of supporting the original statement.

If this is the best that you can do to support your statement, then I will be forced to ignore it.

I don't find it surprising that a Brit would have a different perspective of history than one born in the USA, but I do admit that I find his statement puzzling. While I do recall taxation being a factor in causing the war, I can't think of a single instance of copyrighting infringement ever being mentioned. Perhaps he would like to enlighten us.

Read trade secrets! It's from one of your own Yale professors.
The history you will learn in this country now is questionable, most major universities "like yale" teach from such a left wing view point. Its almost become teaching there own opinions and believes rather then fair and balenced facts. It actually has infected our whole education system besides tech. schools. How they allow this to happen im not sure but its the sad truth.

Anyway, i believe rst101 speaks words of wisdom

It really doesn't matter who says what, as it is possible to find someone that will say just about anything...true or false. At the moment, this discussion is about what you have said. It should be obvious that neither I or most anyone else is going to go looking for some book because you suggested it. If you care that your statement carries any weight or not, then YOU need to support it with facts.

I'm old enough that I was educated well before the influences of education that you mention, and I find the wisdom of these words quite questionable.

So, since we don't know every detail, we know nothing? I don't find any fairness in that idea.

Im not saying you know nothing, In fact, i think you sound pretty smart. I just agree with rst101's view point more. I guess i was referring to the fact that regardless of where we were educated or where we live, all the knowledge we have about it came from someone, who came from someone else, who came from someone else over centuries. So how can anyone say for sure copyright had nothing to do with it or something to do with it i guess.

I didn't say that copyright was not involved in some fashion. it was rst101 who said that it was. Therefore, I asked for some kind of proof of this. So far, that has not occurred. When learning anything, we should use our own minds and reasoning to decide whether to accept or reject any ideas, and that process requires more than a simple statement...it requires facts.

What do you suppose the Government uses ?
What do you think the US Government for instance, would use to protect their computer systems and networks ? I think either they use Norton or Kaspersky, or maybe they just stick with the built in Windows firewall and opt for MSE in order to save cash ! :p
