    There was also the time where an American company(can’t remember who) wrote a program to make a computer produce every combination of musical notes possible, then record them onto a hard drive with a vue to owning all future copyright material ever!!  Last I knew of this case, they were going to court about it, I presume sense prevailed!

    There was an Australian company that used a computer to generate all the possible tone sequences caused by dialing a number with a Touchtone phone, and copyrighted them, saying that they would charge a small royalty for these works of computer-assisted art.

    Human greed, it would seem, knows no bounds…  I loathe the pursuit of unearned profits…
