Legal You think only "pirates" and "freeloaders" rail against current copyright laws? Well, think again - even the Library of Congress seemingly has had enough. The topic is recorded sound preservation, and in a 181-page in-depth study, the Library of Congress concludes that apart from technical difficulties, US copyright law makes it virtually impossible for anyone to perform any form of audio preservation. The painted picture is grim - very grim.

And to refute your assertion that historically world powers have been unable to alter "history" - just think about book burning, genocide or forced coercion. There's tons of ways to alter history which don't necessarily entail "rewriting" historical documents - just remember how the Taliban just recently blew up a historical buddhist temple in Pakistan.

Well, at least we actually know who did that. The really clever bad guys in history are the ones we think were good guys.
