Hello, I am a student at SIUe. I am doing research for a presentation about "The affects of large industry on public policy." I am looking for alternative examples to the corporate model of a closed, controlled system. I am wondering how Spybot functions as a business? Is your business model completely based on donations? I need examples or ideas on how commerce can flourish in an open system. My opponents will be debating from the corporate influenced ideology, that restrictive policy is the only way for commerce to flourish.
Thank you in advance for any help or ideas that may develop from this thread.
