Fight on! (for profit)

This has been blogged elsewhere, but you can't make too much of a fooferaw about this Boing Boing post, where Cory Doctorow discovers:

'USC's purpose is to promote and foster the creation and lawful use of intellectual property.'
If so, there's going to be a lot of pissed-off alumni -- unless USC is defining Pete Carroll's nickel package as "intellectual property."

And if you say, "Hey, isn't the purpose of a university to foster knowledge?", I can only reply, "HEY GRANDPA! YOUR CHILDREN ARE HERE TO SEE YOU!"
