Random thought

Microsoft CDs, in Germany, typically say "Sie sind nicht berechtigt, unrechtmäßige Kopien dieses Datenträgers herzustellen" (roughly, "You are not permitted to make illegitimate copies of this medium").

Well, duh. No-one is permitted to make illegitimate copies, right? That's kind of what "illegitimate" means. Or put another way, if someone were permitted to make a copy, then that particulary copy would not, by definition, be an illegitimate one.
