Sorry to but into this guys, but.... "copyrighted because 'he typed it in.'"
So let me get this straight? If I type up "Footprints", the Declaration of
Independence, the Magna Carta, and the King James version, I can slap a
copyright on it??? My goodness, I'll be richer than Avarice!!!!
Yeah right... This guy needs to really review his ethics, and his law. But
that's just my opinion, I *could* be wrong.
In Christ Jesus,
