Copyrights only last for 50 years after an artist dies and LDV is long
dead now - just a thought.

bit-copiers overcame all but those that were on special floppies (where 
some sectors could not be written), and you never see any of that stuff 
now. It's all down to dongles these days, and very popular they are - 
except with their customers, of course ...

Don't just hit "reply" - my E-mail address is bogus

Actually, even this doesn't stop all of them ...
