Comment Why would you need to ask this question? (Score 2, Insightful) 416

Is this really a situation that you can't figure out on your own? Are you even capable of dressing yourself without help? For that matter, how did this make the front page of Slashdot? Is this a common occurrence that perplexes a large portion of the readership? I eagerly await the day when I see the headline "Ask Slashdot: What Should I Have for Breakfast?"

Submission + - AT&T blocks img.4chan.org from customers-> 11

But "orphaned" works are not in the public domain. They're still protected by copyright, but no one knows who holds the copyright. It may be that no living person or existing corporate entity does. Unfortunately, thanks to copyright law, they don't just enter the public domain, and thus no one can reprint or republish them.

You're not investing, you're buying. If I purchase an Acura because it has a better interior, I'm buying it for my own personal enjoyment, not because I expect that it will hold value better or be worth more in the future. Your comment is akin to saying that it's "not worth the investment" to buy steak over hamburger because it all turns to shit eventually.

Most public domain software is free, at least at first glance.
