“The concept of intellectual property is almost dead thanks to the Internet” (Khanna, 2004). That grim statement can not be ignored. The Internet has changed our world enormously, opening new doors of communication and access to knowledge. Such privilege does not come without responsibility, as the degree to which it can be taken advantage of is enormous. The idea of intellectual property is to treat knowledge like private property, using copyrights, trademarks and patents to enforce the notion.
