"Piracy" has been used for at least the last 40 years to mean various forms of copyright infringement. Computer software and digital copying are just newer forms of "intellectual property," which...

It wasn't a link that was removed. It was an attachment. That is a vital distinction. I am not a mindreader, so I can not tell whether your mischaracterization is a deliberate lie, or "merely"...

An even older result is the criterion for when 2 is a biquadratic...
