The position that

Money is more important than Truth 

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

"I thought that the idea of the internet wasthe free exchange of ideas, thus spreading information and increasingcreativity.".

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

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