With the advent of sexual reprod. things got a bit more fancy and evolution took a new turn. I venture that copying computer bits that provide meaningful information is just another instantiation of the same old process. Later on, that copying process may well evolve to a form equivalent to the sexual reprod. and more diversity will emerge from the process.

I'm not trying to imply that it is explicitly an American construct but
simply that it is something that American business practice encourages.
Other nations have the same modus operandi. Most of them are well
represented in American society and cultural heritage so it is not a
surprise that American business practice accepts and encourages the use
of this method of making money ;-)
