Haven't seen the link, but I think we should consider the following: Many
companies pay their taxes in countries with low taxes, even if the work
was done in high-tax countries. Similarily, many companies try to develop
codes etc. in countries where copyright, trademark and patent law are on
their side.

Why don't we try to get the best of all the laws of the world? Disassemble
code in countries where it is OK, use algorithms in countries where one
cannot patent algorithms etc.

Sehr Wus,
