Serres Game Show - "Identify That Quote"

A request came in to identify the source of a Michel Serres quote. If the notion that all of us are smarter than any one of us is true (I certainly think that is the case with Serres readers), perhaps we can get this figured out and avoid plummeting into a pool of mud. Here's the quote:
"In my eyes it is never a crime to steal knowledge - it is a good theft. The pirate of knowledge is a good pirate."

You can find the citation in a german interview with Serres, made by Frank Hartmann amd Bernhard Rieder in 2001 for german internet magazine Telepolis:

"In meinen Augen ist es niemals ein Verbrechen Wissen zu stehlen. Es ist ein guter Diebstahl. [...] Der Pirat des Wissens ist ein guter Pirat."
