The paradox of free market economy

This is Michael Heller talking about his new book, called The Gridlock Economy: How Too Much Ownership Wrecks Markets, Stops Innovation, and Costs Lives. Basically, he argues that when too many people own too much of a thing, it doesn't work anymore and it actually hurts us all. There's much about science and technology, but he also discusses culture, especially the problems facing hip-hop artists and sound sampling. How can we innovate with this problem? What's the reward of being creative?
