Hi Michael,

Excellent article.

On a similar note, I am currently writing 
an article for Matrix News on a variation 
of this topic, and how it relates to the 
domain name wars.  

While it won't be complete until next
week, here is the preliminary intro:

Comments welcome.

When Worlds Collide
    By Jay Fenello

What would happen if people could own thoughts?  What if they 
could own words?  What if corporations could?  What if they 
could control when and where you could use *their* thoughts 
and *their* words?

As scary as this sounds, we are right now, today, on the verge 
of these very decisions.  In case you doubt it, take a listen to
the Harvard debate between famed legal scholar Larry Lessig, and 
the Motion Picture Association's very own Jack Valenti.
