Subject:   Publicly Funded Research Open Code

I think research that produces code which is funded by public dollars should be open source.
Take the counter position, that it may becme privately-owned, then why should the public fund a windfall to a private owner? Once the public funds the code, the code becomes public property.


I saw an article (www.CollectiveWizdom.com) on this I think.
