This claim of "joint ownership" is one of the funniest and most
ridiculous things I've seen in years.  Unfortunately it seems to be
gaining adherents among DMCA proponents, which also makes it one of the
saddest things I've seen in years.

You can keep repeating yourself with this if you like, but you're none
too likely to win friends with this or win arguments based on such
specious claims.
