RE:  OCLC turns evil (was ISO turns evil?)
I recommend the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path, personally.

Professionally?  The sudden and pervasive presence of global networked 
communications to the scale of the local desktop has created a percolation 
of intellectual property laws, practices and goals.   While this creates 
uncertainty, it creates opportunity and the opportunistic will pursue 
these.  So far, normal.   A little further on will be a reordering of 
the property laws to balance the system, but that doesn't happen while 
the pot is at full boil.  Neither ISO nor the OCLC are evil; just a 
bit misguided, so the problem is not defeating evil, but guidance.

Patience and focus.  Good things will come of this.
