This is non-sense. Nobody benefits from it, and result is less freedom 
for everybody. What Greg says is, that we are really bad in making works 
free and creating sharing community ("gift ecenomy" means exactly that). 
THere are licenses which are very good in both. And - as i understand 
this - we should actively promote those licenses because now we are not 
doing it and results are far from perfect. It's that easy.
