I've long thought that people in general didn't care about questions of
copyrights and patents because such things are too remote from everyday
It's interesting to see that people caught up in the Beechwood Homes
collapse are now running into the nasty end of copyright law. They're
being told they can't go ahead and build their homes with some other
builder, because the plans they paid for are actually the copyright
property of Beechwood.
It will be interesting to see whether something that clearly brings
copyright politics to the kitchen table will have any impact on
law-making attitudes... And to people who lobby over IP issues, I would
remark that you've never had a better issue given as a gift.
