Now, beginning by thinking where we want the world to be —which, by the way, is what this country’s Founders did when they put copyright into the Constitution in the first place: “to promote the progress of science and useful arts”—is useful but limited, because to get the desired situation in which we can aggregate with abandon, we need the original sources to survive.
Ek din khwab mei woh mujhe mil gayi
dekh ke mujhpe woh yoon hans gayi
maine poochha usse ab tak tum thi kahan?

woh mujhe dekhte hue dekhti rahi
aur yunhi yeh janmo ka bandhan
janmo ke liye shuru ho gaya...
