Those who are never satisfied with what they have, even if it's more than
they can ever consume. Unfortunately this is the basic principle of
capitalistic business: Make more money for the shareholders. I wonder if
"always go for win-win" will work as a premise in world-wide business.
But yes, I agree, availability to all is a key feature. I think this will
make patent lawyers very unhappy.
