Re: <nettime> Creating Monopolies of Knowledge


Really interesting the sci-fi scenario we have ahead us, one software 
giant in control of the intellectual knowledge from the world. Few 
goverments has such power, toothless organisations as Unesco can try to 
stop or slow the process but they lack the money and they are not so 
ruthless committed as Microsoft. Scary, Microsoft and Monsanto are working 
along the same patterns. Monsanto have nu patents for genmanipulated seeds 
in all the world, notably Mexican corn, which is originally from Mexico.
