One of the nice things about unlicensed printing of *books* is that they
stay where you put them; if 17th-century pamphlets had had the capacity to
reproduce themselves and crawl into your copy of Paradise Lost (and perhaps
eat away the bit where Adam and the angel have dinner) perhaps Milton might
have felt differently.
