Appropriation and Remix Culture in our Technological Times

Clearly being able to patent scientific information is detrimental to the general advancement of people.. However because of the commercial aspect and corporations being driven by profit, this must create competiveness that motivates scientist to produce the newest ideas possible. A happy medium would need to be meet that could allow the science community to share certain broad or large-scale concepts, while protecting other smaller ideas more in relation to a company’s specific field. Also eliminating certain aspects of large corporations contracts with their scientist, such as allowing them to work on off company projects would be helpful.
