Summary
"Abramson argues that the key to the entire information economy - understanding the past and preparing for the future - lies in our approach to intellectual property and idea markets. The critical challenge of the information age, he says, is to motivate the creation and dissemination of ideas. After discussing relevant issues in intellectual property and antitrust law, the economics of competition, and artificial intelligence and software engineering, Abramson tells the information economy's formative histories: the Microsoft antitrust trial, the open-source movement, and (in a chapter called "The Computer Ate My Industry") the advent of digital music. Finally, he looks toward the future, examining some ways that intellectual-property reform could power economic growth and showing how the information economy will reshape the ways we think about business, employment, society, and public policy - how the information economy, in fact, can make us all rich, as consumers and producers, if not as investors."--BOOK JACKET
