Remember that as soon as information is available in digital format, it is
out of control. With all the back issues on a single CD, one can burn
thousands of copies from that one master and IGS no longer controls who gets
it and can no longer require payment for content. I know it is illegal to
copy and distribute copyrighted material, but how often are the laws really
enforced.... Think about it.
