There's an endless variety of types of copyrighted work. Paying a blanket fee for "music" only sets up the situation for the next type of content owner to demand their tithe from all.
Don't think these megacorporations won't want their own guaranteed slice of your assumed piracy.

That's crap. You don't know what you're talking about.
The likely answer to the OP's question is it would be necessary to reproduce a complicated sequence of activated genes to reproduce the development of the organ over time, the way it does in a foetus. So stem cells would be the likely source material but they don't just turn into a heart or liver by themselves; they need extensive prodding from the environment to go down that route from undifferentiated cells and eventually become a functioning organ.
Fucking Windows, how does it work?
Let me tell you
An FBI agent watching the courtroom activity might have curbed some of SCO's outrageous behaviour.
I changed to xfce recently after trying KDE 4.x for the 2nd time after 12 months (debian lenny to squeeze). The first time, I backed out of my upgrade. The second time, I took a friend's advice and switched to xfce. It's more stable than KDE (kdm locked up my screen twice in a day), much faster, and things mostly work the way I expect.
Indeed; it seems to be a good example why extending the DNS character set was not such a good idea. DNS should have readable domain names, and avoid using different characters with identical glyphs and non-printing characters.

Your God is not so powerful now, is he??
I've had "Securitel" monitored alarms, both the type where cable integrity is monitored at the exchange and the type where the alarm system dials out over PSTN with a low baud-rate modem.
My current alarm system, the LS-30 is much superior to both. Because it's ethernet-enabled, it can be monitored by a security company over the Internet. It also can alert via GSM or PSTN. Of course, one of the features of this alarm system is that the owner doesn't have to get a professional monitoring service, but the choice is there.
I haven't seen security company infrastructure but my impression is that they can achieve much better economies of scale by using the ContactID protocol and net-connected alarms. They can also provide better service to home owners.
'Our future is now totally dependent, totally entwined, totally symbiotic'
I would have said more parasitic than symbiotic, actually
Yes, it seems pretty sensible. Righthaven was not harmed at the time of publication. They clearly looked for an infringement and then brought the harm upon themselves.
On the other hand, it could be said that the Las Vegas Review-Journal had suffered harm, and Righthaven bought the rights, thus relieving LVRJ of the harm and taking it upon themselves.
