Abstract: "The current dispute over the ownership of knowledge can ultimately only politically, not primarily economically and technologically not primarily, to be decided, as well as the disposal of the water, or the pollution of the environment. "The question of the possession of knowledge, that ultimately, the access to knowledge, has a similar universal dimension. To the decision to make space, the question - certainly easier - to the following alternative returned. What is on what grounds and with which political consensus chances wanted: the strengthening of the private sector in its objectives, knowledge and information about appropriate products to market more efficiently and according to them? Or the increased support of public and non-commercial institutions, whose aim should be the production of and access to knowledge and information regardless of commercial interest, and thus free to hold?"
