Joshua Gay - "Should Innovation Be Free?" (Cambridge, MA)
Apr 08, 2015
from 05:30 PM to 08:00 PM
The FSF's licensing engineer & compliance manager, Joshua Gay, is going to be part of "An Innovation Series Debate: Should Innovation Be Free?":
It’s a debate that has gone on for as long as innovation itself. One side argues that innovation works best — and society is best served — if new ideas are allowed to flourish based solely on their merit, not someone’s ability to pay. The other side argues that paying innovators is only fair, that not paying them stems the flow of new products and services society sorely needs, and that the marketplace is the true measure of a new idea’s value.
