Your copy(the lamp) is yours. The smoke/light is not.

Nonsense. Both are mine.

That's the funniest thing I think I've seen on /. in months.

If that is the case, then you should keep your car off of my driveway, your light from my eyes, your smoke from my airspace, your songs from my ears, and your ideas from my mind.

Since there is no difference, by your own words, between any of those, any violation of the above should be treated as a criminal trespass and prosecuted accordingly.

The veto is to allow the people who are owed the money to keep the sale price reasonable, not to guarantee that they themselves can buy it for $1.

Then I would think that veto power would be extended to all the creditors. If it is, maybe that little tidbit was omitted because it would remove some of the zing from the article.

We don't really understand it, so we'll give it to the programmers.
