An Idea Whose Time Has Come · Thursday February 26, 2009 by Crosbie Fitch

Don’t just take my word for it. The solution to the copyright crisis is obvious. It’s so obvious that people keep on discovering or re-inventing the same solution.

The latest great minds to join our happy throng are “three (fairly) young European guys working in IT and business consulting” who call themselves TakohaMen and have a site www.takoha.eu.

They now also recognise that they are not alone.

Read their manifesto. It’s extremely familiar to those of us who’ve already foreseen the future – a world in which people pay each other for their intellectual work, rather than printers for copies of it (at monopoly prices).

So, Takoha, welcome to the club! :-)
