Quoted from the "Overheard" section of the April 1993
issue of "UnixWorld":

   Here's part of a letter UnixWorld received from Microsoft: "The
   library at Microsoft has been receiving requests from employees
   for copies of particular articles from [UnixWorld], and Microsoft
   would like to include the publication in its list of approved
   publications for article reproduction.  We request that you sign
   this letter and consent to Microsoft and its subsidiaries reproducing
   copies of selected articles from the publication obtained from any
   source and in any format."

And the response from UnixWorld...

   Sure, if we can do the same with your software.
