I'm sure lots of you got this already, but I had a good laugh when I saw
it.  Isn't it somewhat ironic that we get this the day we start
promoting Free / Open Source software? :-)

I suggest that we milk this for all it's worth.  Someone should get in
contact with the Daily Universe editors about this.  They may just run
a story about copyright infringement/piracy, and it would be shame if
the Free Software community were not at all represented.

Mike

P.S. - Has my editorial run yet?  They haven't updated their Opinions
section on the newsnet site for over two weeks...
