Creative StimulusHere's a great article written in the NY Times The Tyranny of Copyright, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation's page on free culture.
1. Creativity and innovation always builds on the past.
2. The past always tries to control the creativity that builds on it.
3. Free societies enable the future by limiting the past.
4. Ours is less and less a free society. --Lawrence Lessig, 2002.
• June 3, 2004. Greplaw, a production of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law has this article, Information Can Not Be Owned: There is More of a Difference than Many Think. Jean Nicolas Druey, professor emeritus at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland. [more]

FREE/OPEN SOURCE [Article] [Definition] [see also "GIFT CULTURE"] All software is built with source code. Open source means the code is open and you can see it, change it, learn from it. Bugs are more quickly found and fixed. And when customers don't like how one vendor is serving them, they can choose another without overhauling their infrastructure. That means: No more arbitrary pricing. No more technology lock-in. No more monopolies.

• OPEN ACCESS ARCHIVES [Article] [News] Influential scientists, educators, and business people are urging journal publishers to free their published works so they can be accessed in comprehensive digital archives. That would create the opportunity for new services that dynamically interconnect material in the archives. To achieve this, two issues endemic to scholarly journal publishing need to be tackled: decoupling journal content from publishing process; defragmentation of the control of access to works at the article level.
