In an article about Open Source software and its impact on vendors, I think I ran across one of the stupidest paragraphs I've ever seen - here's Dana Blankenhorn:
Many of these vendor fears are wrapped up in the phrase "intellectual property." What you do for me becomes my property. But why should it? Why should you, as an employer, continue to profit from the work I perform as your employee?
It's called a paycheck. If you want to have full ownership of what you do, then you do it as an independent, and take the risks that come with that. If you want to take the security of a paycheck, then you also take the restrictions that come with that. It's not that complicated - TANSTAAFL pretty much sums the whole thing up.
