Gerv's latest column in the Times Online is great:
        "If Mozilla permit the sale of copied versions of its software,
        it makes it virtually impossible for us, from a practical point
        of view, to enforce UK anti-piracy legislation, as it is
        difficult for us to give general advice to businesses over what
        is/is not permitted."
Which is true on the face of it; there is no simple "you cannot copy
software" edict to batter business people with.
One wonders whether or not some kind of education campaign for the
trading standards officers across the country is called for.
