I work in the software business, talk about intellectual capital law suits …. I think these things were invented to two purposes, to give simple people like me headaches and to make sure there is always something to keep our courts busy. What we need here is a simple solution …

How about this, if I’m going to make a pair of tables for my self then we are all pretty much agreed that it’s ok. If I make a pair to sell or 10 to sell, and I plan to do to make money, simply buy a copy of the plans for each table I sell and include that as a part of the cost of the uint.

I’m a firm believer in “you reap what you sow.” For me, I wouldn’t dream of chaeting someone out of their rightful income. But at the same time you have to ask … who invented the box? I think it’s up to each of us to do what we feel is right, and I hope that the best in human nature will prevail, I do what I can to see that it does.

Just a few thoughts. More than that gives me a headache :)
