I was looking for a discussion of the issue of appropriation in typography and came across this article. Copyright, intellectual property, and the modern notion of ownership are up against the potential for instantaneous, universal dissemination of information made possible by the internets. There is a larger discussion of the notion of "open source" and how it relates to typography (and design in general) on the site where I found this article.
Confucius say, "He who owns grasps nothing."
