Troublesome horizon

Author: JT Smith

An anonymous reader submitted a link to Russell Pavliceck's column at InfoWorld: "When you hear about open-source people objecting to the proposed W3C rules or
ranting about the SSSCA legislation, do not assume they are merely leftist nutcases trying to
subvert the rights of copyright owners. They are not. They are, however, fighting against
proposals that may damage the structure of the Internet by crippling or destroying
open-source software use.

It is one thing to protect the rights of copyright owners, but it is something else to make
freedom illegal while doing so. There must be a better way."
