I like openness and transparency! There seem to be but very few general principles that with good sense can be applied to most phenomena of modern life: Openness is one of them. Open Source is the result of this principle being applied to software. Though no Open Source fanatic at all, I think that putting software under an Open Source makes sense a lot of times both from a moral and economic point of view. But importantly, developers should not be forced to produce Open Source by legislation or other regulation. Open Source should be the result of a choice. However, the choice should be real. Government should work to secure that a competitive market for software development exist, so that there is a real choice between different software types. The most important role of government in the information/network society is to prevent monopolization of information!
