Authors' estates are notoriously greedy and short-sighted. I've seen several efforts come to grief on the fact that the heirs frequently have highly-inflated ideas of what the books are worth (Hey, they're classics!), and by God they want their "cut." Project Gutenberg had to fend off efforts by one "estate manager" to claim that materials which were clearly in public domain weren't (sort of a dwarf Warner Music). Another effort to publish "the complete Murray Leinster" foundered the same way.

My wife and I have a Krups dual-carafe coffee maker with a setting switch for 4 cups. Set the switch, take some beans out of the sealed container for the pre-ground beans, place them in a small filter cone. Place cone in plastic holder, pour in water and wait briefly while the coffee brews. Add seasonings to taste and drink.

Because good security, like anything else worth buying, costs $$$. So it looks like a loss on the books. Remember, "the books" don't show the loss Target's taking in lost trade until the trade is lost by incidents like this. And even then, I'll be they don't do very much other than put some cosmetics on their system.
For the same $tupid reason: "The $tockholder$ won't like it."
Five gets you one hundred that, assuming this agreement actually exists, there are exceptions in it for cars being used by high officials and the well-enough-connected-to-pay-sufficient-bribes.
"They've got me aimed at a computer center. Why don't I just fly a little farther and hit a maternity ward?"
These days, just bringing the STL file to school might get you expelled.
I'm sure it will prove equally so for three-letter-agencies and other government entities.
A vehicle can operate manually until hitting an on ramp
And after that, the computer will have nothing to do but wait for the tow truck.
In Harvard Med my name is cursed! When he finds I published first!
