@JP Thx 4 explaining everything clearly to me. I guess i shouldnt watch any anime then.


@UK As i said before EVERY COUNTRIES HAVE DIFFERENT LAW (Sorry i pressed the caps unintentionally). I can say you are VERY VERY LUCKY to be born in a country where the teacher teaches you about copyright law since you are in elementary school. NOBODY CAN Choose to be born in which country or to be born as someone else. (No offense). If you want to go to other country it will be better if you understand the culture and the law of that country first rite? I just want to know the law and try to abide them. So i just need to ask to someone who KNOWS AND WISE enough to tell me about that. I just want to be better and better. If you just want to say something like idiot, lame, noobz, op just dont shout those words to me. Just find a mental disorder guy and say anything to him (I guess every culture also forbide you from despising people, especially those who need help but you push him into the DEATH VALLEY). Not everybody know your law, (I can say my country's law is blur enough, even if you do something legal you can be put into jail, and vice versa) so if you dont want to tell me what is right and what is wrong just keep silent and say nothing, but if you do KNOW the law just do like what JP did. He told me what i need to know so that i wont violate your law. Mod please take care of this case

OP, I have to say that what was right and wrong was mentioned very early on in this post. I, JP and the other mods tried to give you an example. Your are correct that laws are slightly different in every country but the basic principles are still there. In China I believe there is a copyright case about to start of a company reproducing a BMW car in all but engine etc etc. I believe that China's laws are less restrictive in copyright (I may be wrong and am prepared to be corrected if that is the case) but overall intellectual property or commercial property is the copyright of the original person. I did not get this from my school education but as something that I learnt in life in general. I am aware that copied software, products etc etc are readily available in asia and the world in general but that still doesn't make it right.

All we have tried to do (and I speak on behalf on the other people who have posted) is provide you with clear and concise information as to what is right and what is wrong in THIS country and most of the world. You still don't seem to have grasped the basic concept which is why I tried to give you an analogy (using your electricity) to hopefully clarify the matter.

If you wish to take our advice then that is entirely up to you, but I don't think any of us could've made it any clearer. That is the end of the matter as far as I am concerned and I shall not speak on the subject again to you. Good luck in your decision making.

I hope I haven't overstepped the mark mods and my apologies for speaking on your behalf. I do not mean to offend or put words in your mouths.

uk,

you have more patience than I have. Although I have been reading his similar threads a lot longer!

garnet4david,

You are really something of a smart-arse aren't you? You are more agitator than anything else.

EVERY COUNTRIES HAVE DIFFERENT LAW (Sorry i pressed the caps unintentionally)


Then why didn't you just go back and correct it? Why did you selectively use them in the later part of your post.

Even your country has laws and they aren't blur as you like to make out. If I remember correctly, you are from Indonesia. It's not the laws that are the problem there, it's the people that break them........ Ring any Bells?

Nah! Just means I've been bored longer! :mrgreen: Splatted is the one with the patience. Never have been able to catch him. He used to have 6 the most I've ever had was 4. Both Majong and Jewels were mine once upon a time..... :(
