    Someone brought this up earlier in the thread so I'll restate it - copywrite or the length of copywrite.

    uhm, yeah i dont see that being a moral issue really. Not in the high sense anyway.

    if we are talking about morals stripped none to its most basic meaning and the subjective definition of right or wrong then maybe i guess but typically when people talk about morals they are talking about upper level right vs wrong.

    like rape, murder etc
    and not like taking pennies out of the penny jar at a gas station you know what i mean.

    as far as copyright law im not that familiar with it

    isnt it basically a law that states copyright can run out after a set time?

    depending on what is being copyrighted and the time i think its a good idea and bad idea i dont think its a black white issue. Like just about everything its circumstantial

    Re: How inclined are you to follow immoral laws?

    I can't really think of an example of not following immoral laws, but I do know professionally that I will not dispense or approve of any medication for the purpose of an elective abortion when I become a licensed pharmacist. In some states it is illegal to deny someone who has a prescription for an abortifacient, but still many leave that judgement up to the practitioner. In such a state I would still refuse to fill any abortifacient for an elective abortion because in my own values my license in that state if worth less than using it to contribute to, or approving of the unethical killing of another human life and have my own actions be partially responsible for facilitating that (if I'm forced into such a state I simply just won't stock it, then refusal wouldn't be an issue). As a professional though I simply refuse to practice in such states in a setting that would require me to contribute to killing another human being.

    I remember hearing about a law in the old west that outlawed the game BINGO. Suddenly people started paying HOTEL.

    Any law that isn't well thought out is a stupid law and to me, immoral.
