First, a confession .... Where I come from, we allocate resources by 
population and land mass ... Isn't IP a resource? ;)

Seriously, You need to read this thread from the beginning and get to 
know what led to this proposal by Andrew and Yours truly (Senor Domingo).

We are exploring ways of putting a resource with a short shelf life and 
high level of attraction to pirates and brokers, into use, and within 
the next 2 years. If you are tempted to think of it as hoarding, then 
call it "legitimate burn".

There is no concept that is not open to abuse! The academia is still a 
safe haven. I will not consider what is used in training the future 
generation - hoarding.

> Still puzzled but open to enlightenment.

Then get into the lotus position, clasp your hands, close your eyes and 
just drift. You will attain nirvana!!

Nice day to all.
