Re: Copy-Protection and Other FS Programs

And to ad to this, I in my early days tried copying the authorization 
diskette not knowing it was right protected. I rue the day I attempted this.

The only example of piriting JAWS came across this list a year or so ago
and the fellow who told us where to find the program or whatever it was
that he had discovered was nearly drawn and quartered. The other example
of getting an unrestricted JAWS was, I believe, somewhere long about the
introduction of 5.0. As I recall there was some foul up n the part of FS
and they put and unrestricted version on their web site for downloading
s a demo except it wasn't a demo, it would never timem out.
I honestly beleve that most of the folks who need JAWS are reasonable
honest and, besides all that, at the rate software is developing you
would probably be in sad shape if ou could not get the fixes to known
problems.

This is sort of like the FBI and their Chicken Little "The Sky is
Falling"
routines.
Very few Software Companies have any form of Copyright protection, it
generally cost them more money to implemtnt and monitor, than they might

lose in Copyright infringements!
Many of the different News Agencies say that most of any Copyright
infringement is done out side the USA.
There is of course no information or facts about how much copying of
programs go on and no statistics to base this argument on, so all of
this is
just Conjecture with no facts!
