The human in me agrees. Help me protect my designs. And make me money.
The humanitarian in me sees that everything needs to be open for the betterment of design, society, and the future existence of humanity.
Like you said, the way it is now it benefits the big business. But as long as big business runs our governments that's the way it will stay.
