Cool down, please! I like your battle against copyright, but I dont like 
your language (and I dont like P2P). Dont speak of democracy when you 
are talking about anarchy. Words have a meaning, thats all. One day you 
may need the original meaning or society may need it. Ask somebody about 
democracy in some years and he will answer: "Ah, free mp3s".

How is: "Copyright is not accepted by many anymore today, they dont care 
about the law and do what they want"?

Best, H.
