Bill Gates, comunismo y Robert Scoble

Bill Gates ha dado una entrevista a CNET/News.com . Lo que más destaca la blogosfera (Boing Boing y Joi Ito, por ejemplo) es que llama comunistas a quienes apoyan la "free culture" (software libre, creative commons, etc.).

Q: "In recent years, there's been a lot of people clamoring to reform and restrict intellectual-property rights. It started out with just a few people, but now there are a bunch of advocates saying, 'We've got to look at patents, we've got to look at copyrights.' What's driving this, and do you think intellectual-property laws need to be reformed?
A: "No, I'd say that of the world's economies, there's more that believe in intellectual property today than ever. There are fewer communists in the world today than there were. There are some new modern-day sort of communists who want to get rid of the incentive for musicians and moviemakers and software makers under various guises. They don't think that those incentives should exist.


Estoy totalmente en contra de la piratería, pero apoyo la idea de compartir conocimiento si el autor accede y promueve que sea así.

Desde un punto de vista de relaciones públicas, todo el trabajo de meses que ha venido haciendo Robert Scoble, Scobleizer, en torno a la transparencia y la apertura de Microsoft se puede perder. Sin el compromiso de los altos directivos, la comunicación de la empresa pierde credibilidad y eficacia.
