----- I do not understand the last part (from the * I have inserted). What he 
could download or record via internet radio is only a poor substitute for the 
linear signal he could obtain by copying. Obviously, if he copied the fine 
linear signal to MP3, then the argument is valid. In Danish public libraries 
there is a latency period subsequent to commercial publication of a CD, 
during which it cannot be "checked out" from a library. This is one of the 
necessary compromises, balancing the needs of record companies to have the 
market to themselves and the right to know and to study in-depth of the 
general public. Fair use is the buzz word that is almost forgotten.

Kind regards,


George


P.S. I am increasingly buying original books and journals for my own 
reference purposes, rather than wait for long delivery times for photocopies, 
which are sometimes also quite costly.
