    Re Chester- My daughter started Uni there this term. I've asked her to unearth any clues (she's doing archaeology) or Welshmen. No, second thoughts, she can leave the Weshmen where she finds them.

    I wouldn't worry about that too much. If I remember correctly it's still legal to fire a bow and arrow at a welshman within the Chester City walls! I lived there for 25 years and never witnessed it. Even after a Chester v Wrexham match!

    Keeping with the off-topicness, and to prove that a Uni education is not wasted, my daughter came back with....

    ... hmm surely it would mean inside the city walls... so what if you were stood outside of the walls, the welshman inside, and shot him so only the crossbow bolt went into the city? And what if you had borrowed the crossbow from someone else?

    Maybe the real answer here is to all lean on our MPs to bring in legislation that would allow limited copying of music, film etc for educational use in the same way we can copy (sections of) books, newspapers, whatever.
    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1988/48/section/32 explains all the academic get-outs

    Copyright is not infringed by anything done for the purposes of an examination by way of setting the questions, communicating the questions to the candidates or answering the questions
    Storing them in a repository afterwards would be another matter entirely.
