Can you grasp the idea that one can *save* downloads (lawful 
electronic distribution) of "computer program" literary works on 
whatever machine-readable media, and even include multiple works 
on the same material object like HDD, diskette, or CD, and even 
aggregate multiple works in one single archive, compressed folder, 
"executable", or whatnot conglomerate of multiple works), all 
without infringing anyones copyright?
