The whole world becomes richer, as a few clutch desperately at the last trickling grains of sand that fall from the hour glass of amassment.

Intellectual Property is an alien concept that people made up due to their conceit. Leading to an artificial class structure of information have and have-nots.

I vote, down with that sort of thing.

Write because you love to. Believe in the future. Leave the dark ages of info scarcity to the annals of history.

I disgree. Those who lack information have no desire to seek it out. Tell me when you see lines stretching for blocks to get into public libraries and then maybe we can talk sensibly about this.
