Ed,

Speak for yourself only please. Leave me out of your "we". Such audacious presumption without a stitch of evidence to support it is way beyond your reasonable authority.

Bob,

It is obvious "we" aren't riding on the same bus...as we are (err, one is) able to get on or off at will...and I was concerned I would touch that very nerve in someone...no offense intended.

Back on topic...I think Prof. Lessig makes a valid yet subtle point about what is to be done with "creation". If one follows the capitalist model in the path of ASCAP then everything has a price on it.

Now, if creation generates stuff where there was none, where do you put it? I conclude that it is only by giving away a significant portion of it to maintain space within which to place new stuff. A balance has to be maintained or creation will choke itself off.

This brings me back to the point I think Lessig makes about the responsibility of artists (or engineers, scientists, tinkerers or creators) in shifting the model for exchange of their creations. The artist is in control of their work and has the best position from which to influence its exchange.

Do they hold on to it...or let it go?
