What you are proposing is just silly. What is the real original source of a sound recording for instance? Do you want to ship the master tapes from a record company just because you ship some free song? Or the sketches from an artist just because you ship his/her icon or wallpaper? For instance, if I draw an icon on paper and then scan it, do I have to ship the piece of paper? Get real and come down from you ideological high point. kk
