Intellectual Property

I think my downloadable books you can find on the right side of my blog talk for themselves.

I do approve the concept of free and open source, but I still have some doubts… I mean… I’m sure of the fact that ideas in the abstract and books, music (and even film documentary 🙂   )etc… in practice should be ABSOLUTELY FREE. But at the same time, I don’t know if this is ECONOMICALLY POSSIBLE. I would like to become a singer and I really would like to give everybody my music for free, but if I do this, how will I earn a living? The same for my knack for writing. At the moment I’m writing CD reviews just for art’s sake. I’m working as a translator in order to pay the university rates…

Well, what I’m afraid of is that the professions of writer, musician or movie-maker could even disappear. Everybody will be able to write, sing or direct a movie, but only for pleasure and not as a job…

    se invece esiste un ecosistema vibrante di frutti della creatività chiunque può potenzialmente godere di questi frutti ed allora se son veramente rose forse fioriranno …
