13. Good point.

And people are pushing back against proprietary software. Copyright and Patent Law is clearly out of whack.

There is clearly something wrong with this current system where copyright makes the singing of “Happy Birthday” an infringement and even linking to a site an infringement ....

A society of few proprietors and many people who are by design “infringers” (similar to incarcerating by wide classification like that of the “War on Drugs”) is a society of selected rulers and many slaves. We need to reject proprietary software and we need to encourage or promote a culture of increased sharing. It’s an ethical matter. It improves co-existence/cooperation and speeds up advancement. █
