    Re: IRBS.COM is archiving and posting threads from this list!

    George-
     I used the term "stolen" very openly. In this day and age, many people think 
    everything on the internet is free and they very much KNOW about copyrights 
    but they intentionally ignore them.
     I do not mean to cast aspersion on IRBS, but the question remains whether the 
    nav list owners (who may have "compilation copyright" to the thread) granted 
    permission to IRBS. If not, the thread was stolen. There's nothing new or 
    unusual about this, many internet lists connect in some way to a commercial 
    host or sponsor and they are entitled--as are we all--tothe protection of 
    intellectual property.
     Or, as the English and Icelandic common law provide, they may enjoy the 
    privleges of making outlaws of themselves.
    
     I usually don't mind when someone quotes me, but I expect them to have the 
    common courtesy to ASK ME FIRST.
    
     But on checking the web, I've found that messages from this list are 
    apparently supposed to be kept archived at the IRBS.COM site, so apparently 
    the whole point is moot. My apologies to anyone who has been insulted by 
    this.
