Dear 100 Hour Board,

Also on the subject of copyright law and its various atrocities... would those of you who condone (or even go so far as to recommend) music sharing have similar opinions on the subject of sharing sheet music? Video clips? Manga? Why, or why not?

Thank you,
- Toni

A: Dear Toni,

If you condone one, you pretty much condone them all. In for a penny, in for a pound.

Except manga. That shouldn't be condoned under any circumstances.

A: Dear readers,

For the record, there is a ton of classical sheet music in the public domain, and it is very, very legal to download it. So it would be possible to be a proponent of downloading sheet music but not of manga (of which very little is in the public domain).
