Speaking in the realm of software at least, I think of "no artificial
barriers" (libre software) as more sysnonymous with a purely free market,
therefore capitalist environment rather than communist.
I think of government-granted monopolies (patents, copyright, etc) as
closer to a state-run communistic environment than a capitalistic one.
ok, ok... I stop here.
