Why do I envision the Red Queen and the White Queen when I read that 
remark?

David Gerard cut off your own head!  Do it immediately!

But on a lighter note.
Whether or not the owner/author/creator/inventor of CC advocates piracy or 
doesn't, is not material at all to what the *contributors* to CC are 
actually doing.

As far as "music lyrics", since when can you actually buy the lyrics to any 
piece of music, anywhere, ever, at any time, whatsover?

You BUY sheet music, or a song book, or a performance.
I've never, in my entire life, seen "lyrics" for sale by themself.
So please provide a place where they are. Otherwise you cannot protect the 
profit from something from which there is no profit and was never intended 
to be.

Next caller!

Will "the slammer" Johnson
