As you say in your blog, applying open source to non-digial things could crystalize a new society. Perhaps a good example of this could be the Opencola soft drink <http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Cola>.  This model could be used to copyleft medicines, maybe under the Design Science License <http://www.dsl.org/copyleft/>.
