This feel a bit like CDDB a while back. This is an unfortunate risk that
we take when we do things out of a sense of responsibility. There are
always people out there willing to repackage others work and sell it as
their own. Things like the DUL and CDDB were not started as a 'gimme a
bootstrap so I can go and make some cash' but someone decided that
exactly that would be a great idea.

Ce la vie.
