Newsforge links to this peek into the propaganda wars between the beancounters and the geeks in the ongoing SCO saga. Which is really
about the same thing as what iTunes, Macrovision, and the Broadcast Flag are about: digital property rights.
'Viral' licenses are pressing the beancounters' buttons in this example. Of course, beancounters, who are always
focused on exclusion as the sole of souce of value have no idea how viral licenses can help create
value. Isn't it obvious? If not, read my property rights piece. (!)
I've also noticed in the last month or two a serious backlash from the geeks against the term 'innovation' - which they now believe stands for beancounter spin for...something evil. Interesting.
