money for expensive research (irrespective of the
partition-function wheither a few projects worth
M$] or many smaller cheaper experiments), should the
designs/... that result from it be
gratis (as in linux),
opensource (as in the source of beer) or even licensefree?
(the question is not intended as a binary one: it is more ethics of modern physics funding, assume it is possible)
this would also more easily allow people with or without diplomes to try processing the scientific data...
