>As Jefferson wrote of copyright, "Its peculiar character,
>too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other
>possesses the whole of it. He who receives an idea from
>me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as
>he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without
>darkening me."
>One may not copyright a title or an idea -- "an idea" is
>NOT a completed, thought out, intricately arranged
>BODY of ideas called a song. I, personally, don't think
>Jefferson would have confused the two.
