Internet & Networking "John Perry Barlow - EFF co-founder, Grateful Dead lyricist, and, improbably, now a rancher - arrived in Paris and began tweeting up a storm from the e-G8 summit gathered there this week to discuss the future of the Internet." Incredible what Sarkozy is planning - how about he focus on the many problems in France the people there are actually suffering from?

"The right to the possession, use, or disposal of something; ownership
- rights of property"

You can't lost the right to possess an idea until you lost your mind ability to keep it there.

You can't lost the right to use an idea until your lost your mind ability to use it.

You can't lost the right to dispose an idea until you lost your mind ability to forget about it.

It's not an issue of idea being a property or not.
It's an issue of idea being an *exclusive* property or not.

To which I've already replied, above.
