They didn't give up anything, they counted on the law to protect them.
Just as they count on it for not being mugged. Using copyrighted
material simply because you easily can do it, and because *you* think
it doesn't affect the copyright holder at all, isn't any better than
beating up someone because you happen to be stronger, and afterwards
telling it was just for fun.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
