Dear Microsoft, If you didn't listen to Cory, please listen to David

David Weinberger has had a little chat with the people at Microsoft:

Obviously, creators need to be be paid for their work, but not for every bit of value they create: You shouldn't have to pay me if you re-read my book or lend it to a friend, even though you are getting more value from my book. Tough noogies on me. A pay-per-use system and allowing artists to control their works much past launching them into the world will kill culture.
