Stupid Idea of the Day: No offense, but this made my mouth drop when I read it from the Hindu Times in an article titled "Alternatives to Patent System":

In his `Policy Forum,' in Science, Yochai Benkler describes how scientists can organize their research projects using a cooperative approach that gets around some of the limitations imposed by the patent system.

Production is "commons-based" when no one uses exclusive rights to organise effort or capture its value, and when cooperation is achieved through social mechanisms other than price signals or managerial directions.

-- And from each according to his abilities to each according to their needs . . .
