I'd like to compare software with another field whose work is also principally protected by copyright - literature. Perhaps the comparison seems odd to you, but I assure you that software developers are just as involved with their programs as any author is with his next novel. The creative process is just as difficult, and the protection offered by copyright is just as strong. The law certainly sees no difference between an artful sonnet and a carefully crafted subroutine.

grover sat alone on the shelf, placid red smile stiched across his goofy blue face. his fabric eyed gaze never shifted.
he couldn’t see it coming.
when the knife pulled free from the back of his head, his polyester brains spilled to the floor. only a sad smile remained. had grover only been able to see his attacker, things may have been different.
grover the muppet — barely alive.
we can rebuild him. we have the technology.
Thanks to a surge in demand for steel, the Internet and Scandinavian sofas, there are some new names among the very richest of the world's billionaires.
The billionaires are richer and more numerous for the second straight year, but the No. 1 spot is unchanged — Microsoft founder Bill Gates led the list for the 11th year in a row with a net worth of $46.5 billion, slightly less than his $46.6 billion last year.

Microsoft to buy Groove Networks
Microsoft Corp. said it plans to acquire Groove Networks Inc., a Massachusetts company founded by Lotus Notes creator Ray Ozzie, who will join the Redmond company as chief technical officer.
The deal, announced this morning, adds to Microsoft's portfolio of software used by workers to collaborate remotely -- an area that Bill Gates this week called "one of the big frontiers" for potential growth of the company's Office product line. Groove, in which Microsoft had already been an investor, makes a program called Virtual Office that runs on Windows.

"The Waltham, Massachusetts-based software vendor's Linux desktop migration began in 2004 and overachieved on its phase-one goals, the company's chief information officer, Debra Anderson told ComputerWire.
"This year we're moving more aggressively," Anderson said. "We want to get 100% of Novell on a Linux desktop, including dual-boot, and the second part is to drive a single Linux image and have 80% by the end of the year turn off Windows.""
