  Other Answer Votes I believe the internet should be free and holding on
too tightly isn't healthy! 1 It's unethical to steal peoples work. 1 There's
a difference between "free as in speech", and "free as in lunch" 1 if it's
not yours to give away, yuo have no business giving it away. 1 do not take
what does not belong to you without specific permission 1 It is a travisty
and a quantum sin to commercialise learning about permaculture 1 I shared a
story with Bill and got a PDM free in return 1 Yes, Free Access to
Knowledge! 1 Whatever works for you as a superempowered individual! 1
Permaculture
is for everyone regardless of money; not some middle class hobby 1
-- For all who is curious, these are the results of a poll regarding the
distribution of a free or sliding scale digital version of the Permaculture
Designers Manual.
