Having to search an archive of e-mail messages as a substitute for real
support sucks to begin with.  I've almost never found anything useful
when searching the archives, and even when I have, it takes longer to
find it in the archives than it does to just ask the question again.

The copyright situation is an unavoidable legal mandate, not an option.
You cannot defend against an infringement action by saying that
respecting copyright would have been inconvenient for you.
