The British Library’s Future: Shiny, Locked-Down Knowledge? – Open Enterprise

there is not the slightest sign here that the British Library understands anything about the effect that the Internet is having on creating a massive, innovative market of non-rivalrous, abundant digital goods. There seems to be no inkling that plenty of companies make money by giving stuff away (actually, it’s how most television channels, newspapers and industry magazines have worked for decades, so it’s not even a new idea.)
