If what they took was equivalent to what Perry et al "took"? I'd be perfectly fine with that. I mean it all depends on how much they've taken or sampled. Bits and pieces? No problem. Bigger slices? I might want a small share of the credits. Really big pieces would mean a bigger share.

Not really, no. I think it's been a great thing that this has been happening for thousands of years. It's a good thing.

Don't really care what Greg Ham thinks. Or would've thought.
