Count me as a HUGE NO vote for RAND. Perpetuating patents, trademark and
copyright is counter-productive in a world that where virtually everything
is derivative. Innovation is impeded due to the roadblocks of these "last
millenium" institutions. They don't produce anything of value. They don't
add value to what is produced. They just finance leagues of bean-counters,
paper-shufflers and a few more lawyers. It is time to rid ourselves of such
things, not feed them.

NO, NO, NO... keep it Open!!
