Gates? $100 Million Estate a Poor Venue for Piracy Talks

Memo to Bill Gates: I???m not sure that wining and dining an avowed Communist in a $100 million dollar high-tech mansion owned by the world???s richest man makes a strong case for the financial harm caused by software piracy....
Memo to Bill Gates: I???m not sure that wining and dining an avowed Communist in a $100 million dollar high-tech mansion owned by the world???s richest man makes a strong case for the financial harm caused by software piracy. Here???s how I imagine the discussion Bill Gates had with Chinese President Hu Jintao, who dined at Mr. Gates??? estate on Tuesday evening during a visit to the U.S.

Bill Gates: ???President Hu, software piracy is a real problem.???

Hu Jintao(holding a shrimp cocktail): ???Jesus, would you look at this place????

Gates: ???Did you know that 90 percent of software used in China is pirated????

Hu: ???I could feed 10,000 peasants a day for what you spend on lawn care.???
