    Greek myths would be a good idea. I mean who would still be alive to fuss. Then I discovered the translations were copyrighted. RATS. Maybe steal operas, who would recognize them if no melody was there?

    I was thinking about e-books. Soon making notations will become better and more useful. So lets suppose I make extensive notes in an e-book. More than I ever would in a print book. Physics you know.

    Then suppose I become real famous or something, maybe I am real famous when I do it. Now that book is more valuable than it was before.

    Could it be published as a separate copyrighted book? Would some money have to go back to the original copyrighter?

    I wonder what's going to become of us.
