what would happen if you ignored the claim?


Nothing probably. It's hard to enforce a copyright claim. Though it's doable, it'd involve a lot of trouble. But why do you ask such a strange question? If she holds the copyright, then she has the right to demand that it gets removed.

Plus, it's really mean and bad karma to cheat a widow.

What is that? Can you elaborate on it?


I also have the fail safe investing book. Basically it says that you are never going to outsmart the markets in the long run. You should take the average return of the general market, which is around 8% over the long run.

He says the easiest way of diversifying is putting 1/4 of your money in an index mutual fund, 1/4 into gold, 1/4 into bonds, and 1/4 into cash or money markets.

Over the last 40 years, the strategy has averaged 9% per year, and only lost money in 2 of those years.

I bought a bunch of gold in 2002 for 360/oz and now it is as 1650/oz.
