Actually, I have *no* *shortage* of ideas for systemic changes to 
address these problems and bring our civilisation into a post-
capitalist infrastructure, many of which are in accord with other 
futurist opinion and study. However, these would be off-topic in here 
except in an engineering sense.

My original point (and my apologies if I wasn't being clear) is that 
the new intellectual property laws being passed or tabled at the EU 
are symptoms of an overall systemic problem of misconceptualisation. 
Since people don't seem to want to address that, cool, but I thought 
it a point worth making.
