When discussing free software and open access I think that personal property rights  and ‘who’s going to pay for that’ are questions that come up frequently.

As Stallman writes, “you should think of ‘free’ as in ‘free speech,’ not as in ‘ffree_beer_app_logo_2013ree beer’.” (Free Software Foundation, 2014).

Wow, this clears it all up for me. We are sharing knowledge, not giving away our beer supply.#Openlearning17.
