   Pablo Picasso once said that good art is created, but great art is
   stolen. On the Internet, the same holds true. Good code is created,
   but great code is copied over and over.
   The Internet was created from open source software, code that people
   can freely use to build new code, to run their networks, to create a
   new business, or to build a service that people can use.
   Take for example the work of Paul Vixie, who has placed in the public
   domain the software that the Domain Name System runs on. This software
   has been used by every major Internet Service Provider and has been
   bundled into the operating system products of IBM, DEC, Silicon
   Graphics, and Sun.
   Open source software created the Internet, and created the economic
   boom we now see in Silicon Valley. Most of the large web sites in the
   world run on the open source Apache web server. The $4 billion
   Netscape Corporation was built from the open source Mosaic. The PERL
   programming language was created as open source, but now fuels over
   $100 million in book sales for publishers like O'Reilly & Associates.
   But, we are eating our seed corn. There is no systematic national
   effort to create open source software and it is increasingly difficult
   to keep this infrastructure alive. For every success story like
   Apache, there are dozens of projects that languish because of the lack
   of formal support for open source projects.
   In the global village, open source software is not an alternative to
   commercial software, just as in our real cities public parks are not
   an alternative to our commercial districts. The parks make our cities
   thrive, and thriving cities are a good place to do business.
   It is a happy accident that we have open source software, but there
   are simple steps that the federal government can take to provide even
   more fuel for the growth of our information economy. Here is a simple
   algorithm for a Hacker Tax Credit that could be added to the U.S.
       if {
   You produce software that is in the public domain ;
   } andif {
   That software is used by at least 1000 people ;
   } then {
   You may deduct your development and operational costs from your gross
       income for tax purposes ;
   If the U.S. Congress could compile this simple subroutine into the
   U.S. Code, this simple step would have a greater effect than any cuts
   in capital gain taxes. I urge you to consider steps that the U.S.
   Congress can take to insure a strategic national reserve of open
   source software.
