The Soviets had some damned good engineers and scientists, and their designs
(soyuz) are still flying. The space program of the leader of the free world
keeps giving more money to defense contractors. Now tell me again who won
the space race?

War is peace, freedom is slavery, and Carl Marx was right about from each
according to his ability, to each according to his need. This is proven
by the market penetration of the GPLv2 linux kernel. Capitalists need high
quality softare, and they cannot afford the capital to own something that
actually works.

I do not expect copyright will get any weaker until long after a viral 
copyright cryptocurrency has proven more reliable and stable than any fiat
or other currency that can be co-opted like the BSD/MIT licensed Satoshi
Bitcoin client.
