    this is the biggest crock of crap I have heard in some time on this subject & is embarrassing to those of us who believe in free distribution & IP sharing… this “argument” is pathetic! This flawed dribble delivered in such a condescending & pathetic manner only serves as an argument against freedom of distribution & IP.

    sure… read your response Mr Kinsella… not so coherent – much like your post.

    Your definition of IP as a property is flawed. An idea involves a process which can at times have a patent or simply a copyright; to achieve that they need to be original in substance & content.

    The use, distribution & “copy” as you call it in your opinion has no value… I would argue that is because you have NO IDEA & you may not have any means of understanding the value of innovation, art, creativity & intellectual property.

    This issue is not about “loss” or “gain”… it is about ownership & development; it is not about secrecy or NDA for information – it is about freedoms & liberties to create.

    You are way off the mark with this post. It is rubbish – but as long as you defend it you OWN it. Go on, defend it & put weight to my argument.
