I figure that if it was an real moneymaker, some division of Gates-Corp would have turned a service mark into a household word. Or at least the bigger Folklore Centres would have the equipment.

If there's something new under the sun, I 'xpect it is not an easy way make gobs of dough with little effort, at least not legally. IMcautiousHO.

It would sure be interesting to have a paid legal opinion. Copyright gets messy even without e-duplication. Can you afford a lawfirm that pays insurance on advice about technology that changes giga-quickly?

Out-of-court settlements still cost legals. Plus the settlement if there was a financial loss by the plaintiff.

Takes the fun out of providing a great service to those who would not abuse it.
