dont make me laugh,
you call freely sharing information from the scientists mind to the society they inhabit thievery?
if a scientist owns their paper then it should be there choice where they publish it.
and if they choose to place that paper into the commons, then it is a choice made freely by the author
the fact you are reduced to calling names once again shows you have no real under standing of the facts.
i do not condone piracy, but at the same time i do not condone actively holding innovation or scientific discovery hostage.
call me any name you like,
it will not change the world like open source or creative commons will.
the time for captive knowledge draws to a close,
you are the reminiscent of a failing system of control,
i give freely to the world and it drives you nuts.
creative commons will ensure an open and free internet,
open source will out compete your proprietary model in a free market economy
you are desperate to validate your old world paridime,
when we look back at history, you will be nothing more than a bad joke.
ideas the benefit society belong to society
