Quote from: ForeverZer0 on December 04, 2010, 07:22:56 pmI think I agree with that. I haven't been meaning the creator of an idea or thought being able to control its use. I have merely being taking the side of the said creator, stating that I belief he should be fairly rewarded and credited when his idea is used by another. Speaking in the context of copyrights and patents, this usually refers to monetary rewards, but I don't mean only that. I see it is a no different than here in the RMXP community, where a scripter, yourself included, will list the names of others who helped, or whose scripts inspired a certain method that was used, etc. I don't believe we are too far from seeing eye-to-eye on the issue. I only warn of the inevitable consequences of reforming to the opposite extreme. It, like nearly everything else in life, does not work as it was intended when taken to the extreme, but to keep it from going to the extreme (either way), some sort of authority must be placed over to govern it. In this case, it happens to be the government, which you can make your own opinion on whether or not that is a good thing.

I've been an aspiring engineer/inventor since the age of five, and intellectual property is what my future and my life is made of. I have a really strong personal opinion on this that has developed, partially from personal experience, logic, and research, but mostly from personal values. To that end, I have already considered many of these arguments, and have already formed my own conclusion, so reading a paper is not of particular interest. Additionally, this is one topic that I don't actually want to present my opinion on because it really is too personal.
