john newman Posted almost 3 years ago What is YOUR definition of Freedom? You cannot have freedom while you have copyrights and patents that seem to go on forever. There is one fellow who copyrights English Phrases. When the author of a book used one of these phrases he got sued but the printer settled out of court for $1000 because it was the cheapest way out. Also since "The Patriot act" Americans have had their freedom of speech curtaied.
