Addapt ( has been developing a generalized Open IP 
model for the past two years.  Open Source is but one element of an 
impending revolution in trade.  A missing element is alternative currencies 
that are backed by perishable services and information, rather than 
physical goods.  The issues being discussed under the umbrella terms of 
"copyright" and "privacy" will be solved in an attention economy where 
reputation is used to both regulate and value attention trade.  OSS is the 
tip of an iceberg that will rewrite all business models and the non-genetic 
evolution of human acquired characteristics (also known as education).
