If someone posted to ask whether they could borrow a spare lifejacket for a week would you expect them to be told to go and buy one because it's important to support Crewsaver?

There is a big difference in borrowing a lifejacket and asking to have free
unlock codes that you HAVE to buy at about 120$.
Anywai if my mother in law ask for a life jacket, I would ensure that it would
not inflate.....and do a hard turn with her unstrapped in...

Of course because it has become more widespread it has become more acceptable but it doesn't make it right - if there is one thing I can't stand it is a hypocrite - the sort of people who criticise others for breaking the law and then do so themsleves!!!!

Missing the point as usual Codprawn. You don't even know if I actually download mp3's- if i do download software its freeware. if anybody's two faced it must be .....

In the UK you can't even do that. The UK is almost unique in having 'The Mechanical Copyright' act, which means that you can't copy a CD to tape, or whatever, even if you own the CD.

Right then problem solved!

It's unused and sealed I just haven't got around ro loading it You can borrow it load the software in my name (that's Stuart Hopkins not Rogue wave) and five it al back to me when you have finished along with the access codes.

You pay the postage and give a tenner to your local boat resue station!

No I have NOT missed the point - neither did I point the finger at YOU!!!! I did NOT accuse you of downloading MP3s and have nothing against it personally - as I said what I can't stand are people who condemn other people for things and then do just as much wrong themselves - there is a very good saying "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones".

It's not illegal to lend someone a chip. It is illegal to COPY it. Otherwise you couldn't borrow or hire CDs, DVDs, X-Box games.........know then, wheres my Blockbuster card......

All this, and all Philip wants is to borrow a chart for an area he'll probably never go to again. If I had a chart to give I'd offer it. Sorry Philip!

Garmin blue charts.

Shit I wish I had not started this link, the first reply was a bit heavy.
So Iíll have to buy some paper charts or may be borrow the from the
Library. But I suppose Iíll have to pay copyrights if I read them?
By the way thanks for the other offers.
Phil.
