Re: [microsound] popcorn

Its called a copyright issue and yes it does matter.  It matters if you are charging money for your five friends to watch it, you do a screening of the movie.

Besides, what I don't tell you and what you don't find out; you don't know.  It is a non issue if nobody know about it.
