Barbrook is at best a semi-clued policy wonk.  My eyes happened to fall 
onto his footnotes, and #21 and #28 immediately stand out as completely 
failing to understand:   "Shareware is also often known as freeware or
open source software."  Bzzt!  No, I'm sorry.  Wad the paper up and
start over, Richard.

It might be smarter to skip the watered-down, middle-brow _Nation_-mag
refugee public affairs esssays and go directly to
