|Title:||Everything you have is on loan|

It is inevitable that ideas will be shared and creativity will blossom with or without financial incentives. The patent and copyright system are no longer sane methods of protecting individuals, even less so entitys such as corporations and organizations that represent nobody's interest specifically.Listening To:
If someone comes up with something good, something useful and therefor marketable, under the current system they may legally prevent others from enjoying the same freedom of action in enjoying the benefits that such an idea might bring. This is wrong for so many reasons and given the inevitable future of an ever growing population and ever less important borders, we need to start thinking about sharing our good ideas freely. Sooner or later I guarantee you that sharing of this nature will be forced upon everyone. Every action you take affects others and it's only been ignorance in our world that has stymied that fact from our common knowledge.
Everything you have ever had and ever will have has been given to you. What is so wrong with giving something back?
I love this one quote from the recent movie Avatar that Neytiri says to Jake: "All energy is borrowed and one day you have to give it back."
This is true of our world as well and until mankind truly understands what that means, we are doomed to extinction of our own doing.
