i've cc'd a number of vendors whose copyrights you're infringing, as well
as the administrative contacts of all related domains. i've also cc'd
some members of the linux media in the hopes that perhaps they'll run a
story on ethics... i suspect i speak for almost all members of the irish
free software community when i mention that warez suck and that people
have the right to pick what copyrights they place on their own work.
we might have a preference but authors must have the choice. friends of
mine have contributed to a number of those books and while they've made
their help and code available for free in other places they chose to
make some money on their hard won knowledge in those books. a recent
news story (on zdnet of all places) had a good quote on this subject:
Larry Wall, developer of the Perl language, has a similar
perspective. "Open source should be about giving away things
voluntarily," he says. "When you force someone to give you
something, it's no longer giving, it's stealing. Persons of
leisurely moral growth often confuse giving with taking."
hopefully other little warez kiddies will note that some people on this
list not only disapprove of warez but will actually help get them caught.
have a nice day,
ps i have a typescript of a download of the main page, the main page
itself, your email sent to ilug, my response and some select books
from your site available to any publisher's legal departments that
might like them.
