do you see the irony of requiring compensation on something that will not be ever used on a lifetime, and the same thing also being reproduceable/copiable faster than the original author can say 'copyright' ?

i don't know about that, some of those lawyers can say 'copyright' pretty damn fast

riskier does not mean harder, you've clearly never done either kernel hacking or graphics programming, so would you kindly do some research and stop talking out of your ass?

you're probably just trolling, but this statement has been proven to be true over and over again. Your mistake is thinking that you have to stop at some finite point. If that is the case then yes, 0.9999 is less than 1, but the sequence of nines is infinite.
Think of it this way. Say there is a finite number of nines. In that case, you'd have that
1=0.9999...+e
where e is a finite quantity. The thing about e is that the more nines you add at the end, the smaller it gets. After some finite but incredibly big number of nines, e should be extremely close to 0, but still greater than 0. But the fact is that if you add an infinite number of nines (where infinite could be defined as a number greater than all natural numbers), e will be exactly 0. Therefore, 1=0.9999...+e=0.9999...+0=0.9999...

Well, we did talk about world domination for some time, but it was easier to just change the wording of the law.
