I see the following arguments for Openness:
* moral
* legal
* ethical
* utilitarian.

In talking generally I pften only take the last one. - "This is what we
can/could do with openness"

The issues are very strong in text-mining. We *could* make major scientific
discoveries IF we were allowed to text-mine. We could determines what was
good science from bad science. We could avoid large amounts of duplicated
effort == money.
