    I used , they have a letter wizard, I didnt send the standard letter they have, but wrote my own views and what I think would be fair. Somehow though I expect I will get the same canned response so many received.
    It seems so many people do not even know this is happening, I just found out today !

  4. Very good things
    Awesome post! please keep up the great work i would love to hear more like this.

  5. Copyright Law should strict !!!!!
    Hionestly, speaking, I violated copyright law ove over again while I was school. I simply copy the books or course pack materials from my friends who legally purchased it. I really feel bad now when I think of it. The main reason was lack of knowledge about the copy right law or lax copyright law that are not implementaed by Govt. I really feel sorry for the people or writer who spend years to write a book and never receive the returns. I think our copyright law should be strict enough to discourage students, teachers and other violating the copyright law and respect the right holders.

    Good thinking there, Bon. You have character. Most folks here are internet addicts who want no barriers to their addiction.
