I have no faith or confidence in the United States Government's ability to enforce copyrights or patents, or anything else for that matter.
(My confidence in them "flat-lined" years ago ... gradually ... and with infinite certainty.)
I would not apply to them for succor under any circumstances.
Therefore, anything here is fair game ... but ... if you should profit from any idea expressed herein, you owe me $$ calculated by the following formula:
Decide, in your own mind (without consulting your wife), what my contribution was worth. Then... pay me exactly one half that amount.
