The following is significant, although it's swimming against trends
like the ones Meryem has reported in France, so we can hope the
court's opinion will be reversed. I recommend the article.

     someone's copyright also is an infringement, a Dutch
     court ruled today, according to the Church of
     Scientology, the plaintiff in the case.
