I want to respond to some of Madhavi's points about culture. Then, even though it is a topic that is not well suited to the blog format, I want to say a few quick things about utilitarian vs. rights-based views of IP.
Madhavi is right that my thoughts on culture include a greater concern for high quality content, produced by what I call "professional creatives." She seems to imply, though, that I understand these high-quality products to be coextensive with "culture". She says I view culture as "emerging from a professional class that has refined taste (and presumably talent)," while Madhavi herself "offer[s] a more democratic view of culture." This is not quite accurate.
