Why ownership?why restrictions?
If sharing of knowledge is called theft then we are all proud thieves. Is our own profit more important than the better going of the world? Just imagine everyone stopping their daily activity in the world for just one minute: what will happen? Well the answer is just simple; we all will lag behind time. Our knowledge will remain stand still while the world will be doing its habitual revolution.
We are learning the connection between human rights. Freedom is sharing and building. Distributors of knowledge is anyone who possess the ability to propose better ways of improving existing knowledge .Freedom is sharing more than knowledge.
If the existing work of someone can be reused or remixed to a better piece of work or discovery, then why not. If all was about ownership then we would have been using a different language to communicate today and not English as English belongs to the British. We build on others findings, where we would have been heading if we had to restart the whole process of evolution again and again. Let’s suppose if the first being who invented fire did not share it with others in his tribe, would we have light today or would we have to wait for another century.
