I was talking about resale and it seems that others thought I was talking about only selling a single copy.
I was under the impression the originator of the comment was attacking resale. I believe that an artist should get paid for original sales of their work. I do not believe they are entitled to additional payments when a resale occurs.
I have no issue with copyrights and I agree that 12 to 24 years is probably a good range. I thought the original poster was attacking resale and my response was geared that way. Artists should get paid for each original copy they sell.
Should you only get paid for first time a copy is sold? Yes.
People with normal jobs don't just work a day or two and expect to keep the money rolling in.

Obviously, they do it for the chicks.....
What about when a car is towed, or ferried, or moved some other way which gas isn't used?
How about driving through tunnels where you can get a GPS signal? I say we build our own underground road network!
Meanwhile I have yet to find a cell phone with an option to record the calls made on it.
I'm pretty sure my Nokia phone had that ability. It has since died a slow antenna loss death.
I'm pretty sure my old Nokia phone had that ability.
According to the story she somehow accidentally ordered the laptop with Ubuntu. I am not sure how she managed that because I have to *search* Dell's site to find their Linux offerings, but I digress and that is irrelevant anyway.
1) Go to http://www.dell.com/
2) Choose "Laptops" under the "For Home" menu
3) Choose "Less than $700" under "Price" on the left hand side.
4) Click on the first result, "Inspiron Mini 9n"
5) Order the cheapest laptop
6) Ignore the second line of the specs, "Ubuntu Linux version 8.04.1"
If someone just wanted the cheapest laptop, they could easily order it on accident.
But I agree with you that she's at fault for not trying to use it.
It depends on the area they're going to work in.
If they're trying for tech support, maybe a book on Indian (or even Chinese) accents.
What do SlashDoters think? Realism in the face of a nuclear whitewash? Green propaganda from the environmentalists? Global warming is a load of rubbish so it doesn't matter a jot?"
