This thread is going afield

The legal fact that someone could, with impunity,  use her
newly-discovered WS   quarto for  kindling leads some threaders to say:
'there ought to be a law!!'.  Her children, with normal thoughts about
money, on discovering her intention would quickly have her property put
into guardianship.   Anyway don't get too upset about the lack of
criminal sanctions for quarto-destruction:  if people began to use their
newly-discovered quartos for kindling, there would be a law pretty
fast.  True, it might take a couple of quartos on the way, but don't we
have enough Shakespeareiana on hand already to satisfy all but
acquisitive collectors and scholars?

Actually, depending on the circumstances, destruction, alteration,
non-attribution and false attribution may all violate the act.  See 17
USC 106A.
