Hello Susan,

I think you missed Sues' point in your response to her. I believe
what Sue was saying was, that information that affects all
mankind, belongs to mankind. If your "Joe Public" has information
that belongs in the hands of the people, her suggestion that it be
published on the open web is not only sound, but morally the
correct thing to do. It makes much more sense than 'commercial
marketing' that will only reach a few. You didn't address that
aspect of her comments. Your response boils down to; he did the
work and if you want to see it you'll have pay.

This is a major peice of evidence (if it isn't simply ejected
frozen urine or the like.) Your friend cannot copyright it, and
he has no right to hold something like that (if it's real)
hostage for money.

Hey, this is America, everybody's allowed to make a living. But
this moves into the very grey area of the peoples right/need to
know as opposed to your friends' right to earn a buck for the
work that he did.

Sue and Joe both make a valid claim. When given the humanitarian
motivation behind Sues' idea about how it should be distributed,
it tips the scales in favor of Sues' approach and makes "Joe" and
-his motives- look more commercial than caring.

It is a tough call because after all, the guy did put all the
work in securing it. At $25 bucks a throw though it really makes
it look like Joes' number one consideration here is 'profit' and
not simply to serve, help, or enlighten humanity. Which is where
Sue was coming from.

"Do the Right Thing!" <G>

Post the information on the Internet so that -everyone- can
access it. It "belongs" to _all_ of the People, not just the few
that your "ads" will reach or the even smaller percentage who
will go as far as ordering it.

The People have a right to see information of this nature without
having to pay a heavy looking price. If it affects all, it
belongs to all.

Solamente mis dos centavos.

John Velez
