Re: [News] Reading Out Loud Now illegal, Life is Patented

After takin' a swig o' grog, Roy Schestowitz belched out

   For Dan Halbert, the road to Tycho began in college---when Lissa Lenz
   asked to borrow his computer. Hers had broken down, and unless she could
   borrow another, she would fail her midterm project. There was no one she
   dared ask, except Dan.

   This put Dan in a dilemma. He had to help her---but if he lent her his
   computer, she might read his books. Aside from the fact that you could go
   to prison for many years for letting someone else read your books, the
   very idea shocked him at first. Like everyone, he had been taught since
   elementary school that sharing books was nasty and wrong---something
   that only pirates would do.
