Steve Lopez latest article on chessbase

My only comment is that I would have liked Steve to also have compared the chessbase engines to Rybka, Zappa et al

Great Article, but ...

Yes, a good article, which is missing similar information about Rybka, Zappa and maybe a few others. But copying the article here is strictly speaking illegal ( 2007, Steven A. Lopez. All rights reserved.). A link would have been enough.

I can understand why Steve did not mention the other engines. It is a chessbase article after all and mentioning Rybka etc would be mentioning chessbase business competitors, especially if Steve thought that one of the 'competitors' was actually 'superior' to the four listed chessbase engines.

As for illegal, are you sure? I thought it was only illegal if I did not quote the source and give credit to the author of the article. I have mentioned where the article came from and gave credit to the author.

Copyright issues

This is of course a difficult topic. I remember a very long thread about this on another forum. The result was an understanding that articles from external sources were not to be posted directly on that forum any more but only links to the article. I believe that it is only allowed to copy the article with written consent of the author. But then again, I am not a lawyer.

Illegal ...

I found this one:

Everything I like is either illegal, immoral or fattening.
