Cool, the stolen software debate. I wonder what stolen really means when you have taken nothing from the original person.McKenzie wrote:For me, it was better to use something that was right when God then to use stolen software. The Church should be encouraging people to do what is right.
If someone quotes me, have they stolen my words? If an infinite amoutn of monkeys on an infinite number of keyboards writes a copy of Windows (it happened once already right <kidding>) is it stealing?
Laws are such fickle-funny things.
Oh, and I am a software developer before anyone complains about making a livlihood via software development
...and sure, someone is gonig to bring up laws. But I'm in Canada, I pay a tariff on blank media whether I pirate or not. We already have a precedent, and luckily Canada is a law of precedent. See, sometimes laws are in fact useful things <smiles>[/edit]
