Basically, you're proposing the free movement of knowledge as the Europe's fifth freedom. Knowledge, or content or whatever you want to call it has become elevated from commodity to a form of capital. The natural tendency of corporations and governments is to control and restrict knowledge, as they do anything of value. Even the American constitution's first amendment is under siege. There is distinction between the free flow of ideas, and the flow of free ideas. I support the idea of free movement, especially keeping the cost of entry low.twitter.com/cheapdaddy
First of all, sorry for my english, I'm from the south- west of europe, so my mother tongue is not english.I have indeed readed the paper you post about the fifth freedom.I agree in almost every point, but I feel that the key point in europe nowadays regardin internet is that is very constraint by national regulation. I think internet should be regulated by comunitarian laws, so that all citizens can have the same rights regarding it.I think this blog is fantastic, I love to read the opinions of such an important company as google, I also follow the oficial google blog, and I really think that this one deserves more than those "376 readers" which feedburner says you have.
