The position that

Money is more important than Truth  

is not an isolated phenomenon. For an example of corporate thinking on this issue, I recall attending in December 1996 a continuing legal education meeting that dealt with intellectual property issues. There were some discussions among the presenters of material and the audience. One member of the audience said something like:

"I thought that the idea of the internet was the free exchange of ideas, thus spreading information and increasing creativity.".

A corporate lawyer replied (I think this is an exact quote):

"The commercial interests are taking over, and you anarchists will be put down.".
