Ideas can't be stolen, only physical things can be, and then only those that are justly owned.

Hogwash.

While I realize there is plenty of room for healthy debate in this age of digital, i.e., non-physical, "property", and there are plenty of ideas best "given" to the public realm, I'm still old enough to remember an ancient term for the pirating of ideas:

Plagiarism.

I'll be glad to follow up this discussion over on Political Asylum or Libertarian Fools or somesuch, but here at Webmaster's Corner, we're more concerned with the real pressing issues of the day: Well-formed, standards-based markup, and how we can get a good deal on web hosting services ;)

Cheers,

Speck
