Comments: Is IP Binary? Bill Gates Thinks So

Gotta love those copyleft graphics! Someone needs to get them on a T-shirt. I have to say I personally vasilate between a) copyright/patents are a necessary evil of modern society and b) modern society is an unecessary evil. If people, and more importantly corporations (which are "legal persons" with a lot of peoples rights by US law but not the constitution) were inherently trustworthy and not inherently greedy then things could be better. The deep seated question is - this inherent greed to get the most for least, which is the cornerstone of economics and modern society, is that an inherent property of human society or something that can be erradicated and replaced with a different cornerstone?
