Silly hardware manufacturers

They have the most detailed, intensive, stupid licenses agreements to "protect" themselves from people copying their proprietary software. As if there were an army of people with cloned Catalyst 8000 switches waiting to copy it. Idiots :-)

The state department has a list of nations and individuals that americans and american companies aren't allowed to do business with. Though last I checked, only the "Taliban controlled areas of Afghanistan" were listed, since the US doesn't officially recognise the Taliban as the legitimate rulers of Afghanistan. Als on the list are Cuba, Lybia, Sudan, Iraq, Iran and other friendly nations like that.

Cause in the middle of their vast plains where people herd cattle and yaks, there's a bunch of VLSI chip manufacturing and PCB fab plants ready to churn out copied Cisco products! :)
