Hi Pat & List mates:

Yes indeed on all points above. Especially being a lawyer. For those who
exploit it to the max, it is indeed the most lucrative calling in the US.

And why we are so confused over things like music copyrights etc. William
Shakespeare had it right in King Henry the Sixth, Part II:

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers". - (Act IV, Scene II).
