I really enjoyed this entire series, but this last video is particularly poignant. There are huge problems with the patent system and copyright. My efforts to combat this include complaining on Twitter and dark existential episodes where I weep in to my pillows, but I also try my best to support open source software (such as WordPress which runs this website and Ubuntu which runs my home computer). Also, all of the content on this site is under a Creative Commons license, which means you’re free to remix my writing and podcast (not that you would).

If this subject interests you, I would recommend listening to the This American Life episode When Patents Attack! as a start.
