Wakeman : rubbish. Sorry mate - but the line "People seem to forget they don't OWN the software they get a LICENSE to use the software subject to the conditions of use of the software" is utter tripe.

While it is true for Windows and most software from the Borg itself, it is not true for a great deal of other software out there. If you buy Winzip and pay the shareware release, it's yours - same can be said for lots of stuff.
