Wild Wooly Web

Slang for the World Wide Web. It refers to the open nature of the Web where text, images, video and Web page source code can be extracted verbatim and copied around the world in seconds without authorization. In time, many expect that the resources on the Web that are free today will be available only for a subscription fee. See World Wide Web.
