This reminded me of a Star Trek episode

OK, in this Ars Technica piece, some folks at BlueBeat selling MP3s of Beatles songs defended their actions on the theory that BlueBeat were the actual authors of this version of the song under their theory of "psycho-acoustic simulation." I kept flashing back to this bit of dialog from Classic Trek Episode Whom Gods Destroy:

Marta: Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? / Thou art more lovely and more temperate. / Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, / And summer's lease hath all too short a date.

Garth: Liar! That was written by an Earthman names Shakespeare many centuries ago.

Marta: That does not change the fact that I wrote it again this morning.
