Oh, yeah, that's now on the top of my list of things to do; get sued for copyright infringement! NOT!
Sadly, you're right, and it comes down to money. Now, before I go getting in trouble for bashing copyrights, that is not what I am saying. What I mean is in order to understand the laws, you have to pay a bunch of overpriced people your hard earned money. I'm of the mindset that things ought not be so convoluted, yet those promulgating the law convolute it so bad I don't think they
know what it means. What ever happened to the KISS theory (K
tupid)? Oh, wait, the national unemployment rate would skyrocket if the language of the law (note language, not intent, meaning, or interpretation) was reduced to where a reasonably well educated individual could comprehend it (perhaps with some research). Instead, we pay a ton of money to people who are at best arguably
experts in law yet have a difference of opinion often with great varience with their colleagues to argue before a judge, or group thereof, who are no more then highly promoted attornies themselves. Alas, that is a whole different realm, as I digress.
I just want to live my life, have a family, and live by the rules. The latter is hard to do when you often can't comprehend the rules, let alone understand them.
I should stop and get off my soap box. My apologies if any are bothered by my sarcasm.
