RE: [xml-dev] Principles for an Ethical and Sustainable Internet - XML

When you steal a man's livelihood and reputation, it hardly matters to
him if you run over a dog speeding away from the scene of the crime.

Let's put the Saxon libraries on an ad-supported site that sells
pornography and fake pharmaceuticals.   We'll be sure to put your name
on the hyperlinks  next to the pictures of the big breasts and the fake

It's theft.  If the lawyers want a different venue, they can have one.
But I do think it better to find ways to protect property than to
destroy servers because weaseling is more important than property if it
wins a debate on the Internet.

It makes a vast difference. It affects how and where cases are tried, 
what standards of proof are required, what evidence is acceptable in 
court, what the penalties are for wrongdoers, whether or not prosecutors

consider it in the public interest to prosecute, ... you name it.

You might as well say there's no difference between speeding and murder.
