That was kind of the point of my post. Was I too subtle?
Frankly, I'd be perfectly happy to give Disney copyright on Mickey Mouse forever, if they would agree to quit screwing up copyright laws for everyone.
If it's not mentioned in any of the four links I put in, I don't know. I can tell you what'll happen to Fox's reputation, though: nothing. This happened several years ago. Did you hear anything about it? No. Neither did anyone else.
You confused me too, but you do seem to have found a counterexample. Two 'L's and a 'T' is not the best one, though: it is possible in some configurations, but not others. Two plus shapes and an 'O' is a better example; I don't think there's any way to do it at all.
You know, I always figured I was safe as long as I wasn't an asshole or an idiot. Oh, well.
At least the Macs have a command line now. Any so-called OS that doesn't give the user a command line might as well be saying, "You are too stupid to use a real computer."
Frankly, I'd be surprised if theocratic laws were based on anything else.
...I'm sorry. I couldn't help myself.
There's a difference between accepting some people's testimonials, and accepting a unanimous consensus. Can you find anybody who will say, "I got a cloud chamber, but didn't see any protons or neutrons"? People who otherwise seem sane, I mean; no counting the time-cube guy.
If you ask experts on science, I imagine >99% will tell you quantum physics is real. If you ask experts on religion, I would be surprised if >50% will tell you Christ rose from the dead. (If you restrict yourself to people in the US, the numbers might be more comparable.)
Um, yes? Computer CPUs use quantum physics to function. I've seen electrons (this is what CRTs do), and I could buy a cloud chamber for less than $100, and see protons and neutrons.
