Hi Janet,

apologies for the delay in answering. We've still got a huge backlog in 

It's funny you should recommend Information Feudalism, I just ordered it 
two days ago on recommendation from one of our senior ideology guys.

We've looked at both GPL and Creative Commons, and from our point of 
view, they're both moot anyway if we don't make an impact. Free software 
would be painfully killed by software patents, and Creative Commons will 
be killed by DRMd hardware that would be illegal to circumvent.

So we regard our principles as something with a lot more at stake than 
promoting free alternatives. We see them as defending the very ability 
to provide such alternatives.
