It's very simple:
The Preface clearly says that if you don't pay
for the copy you obtained, you have stolen it.
Does your copy of the Preface contain these
statements, or not?
It also says that the character stream can NOT
be modified. The purpose of this requirement was
to preserve ALL Capitalization, bold, underlines,
and italics EXACTLY as found in the original
.DOC files written by Microsoft WORD, Ver. 5.0B.
All original editions say the exact same thing!!
Even the Software Publishers Association
explains that you cannot keep "shareware"
forever; after 30 days, pay up, or delete
This is standard industry practice, with which
L0PHT personnel should be very well acquainted.
Ignorance of the law is no excuse.
The terrible truth is that nobody has paid the
$25 fee for copies they downloaded from the
Internet, and L0PHT personnel are no exception
to this criminal practice. They even posted
it on a file server, so others could steal it
Vultures of a feather flock together.
So, because of all the grief which we have
experienced, for being denied all this lawful
compensation, the burden is now upon all
Internet users to remove it completely, or
suffer the consequences of lawful copyright
It's too bad you couldn't even show enough
respect to request permission to do what
you did. You were more interested in
testifying before Congress, and appearing
on television. So, I don't believe you when
you say I have lost your respect; you never
HAD any respect for me, or you would have
acted differently in the first place!!
Actions speak much louder than words ever will.
You are the one who chose "oblivion" for your
