Any possible planning alternatives and their costs implications should not be really taken into account as general and public interests.<span style="font-weight:...

Further one meets in nearly all areas of the internet the phenomenon that, via copy & paste, copyrighted pictures or texts may simply be used without the approval of the real originator. This originates several infringements of the rights of the creator of those works.
