Wikipedia, Free Internet Rights, and Neoliberalism

1) Given that neoliberalism dominates U.S. policy on issues such as IP and Piracy, can the push for "freedom" against the IP Act by Wikipedia and other sites be seen as minority cultural discourses? Or a cry for change of the dominant view?
2) Harvey's book on neoliberalism seems to present the idea of this discourse as being orchestrated by intention and purposeful minds.  Do you agree or disagree and why? Should Neoliberalism be viewed this way? What other kinds of "free" state might Iraq/Iran accomplish without the influence of the U.S.?
