    Note: the title is misleading. It's a good article.

    It stands to reason that anybody shall abide by ethics developped within the human community over the ages past dating from the iceage,so its natural to protect your properties.That said its also a fact that our current community is on the verge of desintergrating because of our insatible greed in every aspect of live.It gives me a good feeling that some people out there are not so poisoned by this, you can find these passionate and idealistic guys mostly in the open source community, It struck me that they simply say " If it can benefit me why not the others " .

    What is incredible, and we don't read much about it, is the fact that math algorithms can be proprietary when used by software (no other program can use it).
    Mathematics, proprietary. Come again? That's an obvious rule that should exist.
