Quoting Ruben Safir (ruben-at-mrbrklyn.com):

Then, you have opted out of meaningful discussion. Ever. Thanks for

You lack the understanding to hold an informed opinion. But of course
you have an _opinion_. The problem is that's typically just about all
> As the EFF wrote:
One cannot understand what EFF wrote, and understand that they
grealy oversimplified in claiming the case is about 'copyrighting
APIs', when in fact it's about whether copyrightable elements exist in
37 'API' programs that were copied either literally or non-literally,
without a basic understanding of the subject. Which you refuse to get.
Which leaves you with your opinons. Good luck with that.
The uncredited EFF staffer failed to mention that the Circuit Court's
holding is nothing new at all, by the way.
Anyway, it's really comical for you to say 'As the EFF wrote' as if you
were filing a learned concurring opinion when you don't even understand
the basic law on this matter. But then, that's pretty much your entire
shtick. You quote someone else's entire articles on subjects like
copyright law and free use -- hilariously, always in violation of the
authors' copyrights -- without actually understanding their subjects,
and then append an editorial.
As my old slogan goes, 'It's easier than thinking!'

Which you support by voting for plutocrats. I see.
