Law of the Game on Joystiq: Copyright? Copywrong

Joystiq writes: A few weeks ago, a copyright issue was posed to me for discussion via e-mail, highlighting some key misunderstandings of copyright and its purpose as it applies to video games. The e-mail pointed out that a copyright for a game doesn't really protect the game, and to that end, the writer of the e-mail didn't completely see the point to copyrighting game software.

The story is too old to be commented.
