We’re catching up on some news from last week, here come the open source culture = terrifying piracy articles… from CNN.
“With the open-source culture on the Internet, the idea of ownership — of artistic ownership — goes away,” Alexie (novelist and poet Sherman Alexie) added. “It terrifies me.”
It’s more terrifying when someone groups open source with piracy. In our experience as artists and biz owners open source and open source hardware actually gives the maker *more* control and more artistic ownership.
