But it *does* belong to someone. Are you saying it doesn't?
Calling it 'property' didn't cause the developer to refuse to give it
up; it should, in fact, have clarified things.
Your comment actually supports my contention that what *I* consider
intellectual property is just as much mine as my car, my books, and my
bank account. Because, when someone sees my intellectual property, I
really *hope* they think "someone owns that, and we can't take it and
use it elsewhere."
So, I really don't get what you're saying.
