If it's "right" to protect "Intellectual Property", then maybe Zek would
care to explain to everyone why this "right" is not permanent, in the so
-called "real world" or otherwise.

In fact this "right" is not a right at all, but is a grant of privilege,
offered as inducement to selfish; greedy hoarders, in concious violation
of all moral tenets to the contrary, and thus offered only for a limited
time. This is the compromise of ethics the lawmakers conceded to.

And instead of showing gratitude and humility for this privilege they've
been granted, these selfish; greedy hoarders then embark upon a campaign
of terror to extract every last drop of blood they can, when they should
not be entitled to even /one/.

Supporting the demands of such animals is like keeping vampires as pets.
It's time society woke up to the reality that the "rights" we've granted
these blood-suckers need to be revoked. They've more than outlived their
welcome, and their usefulness, assuming they ever had any to begin with.
