Fair Use

Hello all,

During the 1997 annual Microsoft summer inter hot-dog party, Bill Gates
invited questions from the interns:

 Intern (paraphrased): What do you think about fair use rights for consumers?
 Bill Gates: "You don't need fair use; We'll give you fair-use rights when
              you need them."

(source: Communications of the ACM, September 1998-Volume 41,
 Number 9. Page 18)

"Do you hear the people sing, Lost in the valley of the night?
 It is the music of a people, Who are climbing to the light.
 For the wretched of the earth, There is a flame that never dies.
 Even the darkest night will end, And the sun will rise." -- Les Miserables
