What if I read the .doc file with OpenOffice? Does that act suddenly make my data owned by me, Microsoft, and Sun?
What if I use Microsoft Word to save my document as a WordPerfect file? Does Corel now have joint ownership without Microsoft? What if I use Word to read it back in again?
Does IBM (for instance) also have joint ownership because their disks are the container in which I store these documents on my laptop?
