In an online ad to protest anti-piracy laws pending in congress, Wikepedia says, “Imagine a world without free knowledge.”
But should ALL knowledge be free?
Do you expect the attendant at your local gas station to fill your car for free?
Do you expect your doctor to treat you for free?
Do you expect the plumber to fix your leaky faucet for free?
A mantra you hear on the Internet is “information wants to be free.”
Does that mean those who create content are entitled to no rewards from it … and are expected to work for free?
What do you think?
