The perfect intellectual property system and how will it deal with “free”?

Intellectual Property Nirvana: Duncan Bucknell

I spotted the above link about the perfect intellectual property system on Duncan Bucknell’s twitter feed and eagerly clicked to find THE answer.

…oh well, it was worth a try! 🙂  I was going to say that there is no such thing as a free lunch, but refrained as I’m aware that it is a dying phrase!  The new generation is growing up in an economy where free is normal and not just something with a catch!  See the short video clip with Chris Anderson discussing “free”.  This is going to require a lot of what Duncan Bucknell was talking about, and that is “debate about how the intellectual property system should evolve“.  Surely there must be lessons for IP practitioners in a public goods environment here — but which ones?
