One can imagine an economic system where the creators of IP compete with
those who are first purchasers.
The competitive advantage would be to recongize that time has structure to
it and that the origin of creativity has a special quality that lends itself
a new market economy having a higher quality to the kind of things that are
Such a economic system will support more relevance to the present moment,
and be more grounded in the cultural trends. The artisitic expression would
be more open and have a greater diversity. This could be wildly exciting.
The propogation of social knowledge about the occurance of new trend might
come from a bead game:
or some other Peer to Peer architecture.
So artists would be supported because they are tuned into the dasin (spirit
of the times) or morphological resonance (what ever that is.)
The effect of creating laws aroudn the protection of IP in the current
system is simply blocking the knowledge revolution.
The time will come.. yes?
