I'm not quite so understanding. Why unfairly charge us for what might be
done? It is not so different from what book publishers tried to do to
libraries early on. First they tried to close them down, and also tried a
different pricing scheme. But today they don't try to charge more for books
sold to libraries because someone might scan it and place it on the web.
