Text from Lessig

From The Future of Ideas, Lawrence Lessig on the commons writes:

The system of control that we erect for rivalrous resources (land, cars, computers) is not necessarily appropriate for nonrivalrous resources (ideas, music, expression). Indeed, the same system for both kinds of resources may do real harm. Thus a legal system, or a society generally, must be careful to tailor the kind of control to the kind of resource. One size won't fit all.

I should be getting back into things soon enough. Hang on
