Why do we (still) have copyrights and patents....?

Sometimes I think that the fundemental principles behind the copyright and patent systems are loosing the value they once had. The internet is accelerating this. I would say that we might even want to get rid of those systems altogether, and I would not be surprised if we would see a greater value creation (cultural and economical) as a result of that.


"The case is one more example of the Internet's inherent lack of respect for national borders or, from another view, the world's lack of reckoning for the international nature of the Internet, and it is also an example of the already complicated range of copyright laws. "
