Well said Jon. I agree. Myself I don't have the political answer but at this point there needs to be one. . Mr. Snakebite and Mr. Gerry seem to think it isn't worth protecting and the best arguement for that is that a solution is not obvious. What will it take ? To me the easiest step would be a computer innovation like vector painting, cleanup and inbetweening. A system that we somehow fail to share with our Asian counterparts.
