  • A talk with Bionic Mosquito on IP

    Update: Bionic Mosquito replied to me in the comments of the latest post on his blog mentioned here and suggested that I left out context to one of his comments, and that I did not include the link to the Hoppe quote from the piece that he originally quoted. I have made those updates and added a bit...

  • IP Strikes again...

    I hadn't thought about it before, but it's kind of suprising we don't have more threads concerning IP. But then again, there isn't a whole lot of publicized news concerning the subject (unless you're looking for it, which Kinsella and Oliva used to keep us in the loop on at the blog...

  • Call to Action: Intellectual Property

    The topic of Intellectual Property seems to evoke great emotions in its opponents and defenders. It is time to document IP from an Austrian point of view and summarize both sides of the debate – what is the perceived problem, what are the possible solutions and how would (and could) the world look...

  • It Was Never About The Money, Stupid (IP, copyright lobby, & sharing)

    I found this to be a really great article about copyright from an anti-IP advocate who obviously has no real theoretical education on the subject. It's interesting to see how the argument is made from the perspective of someone who is exposed to the ills of government in this form and just knows...

  • The end of Internet FREEDOM

    From the Mises Blog : This pending PROTECT IP Act is very scary stuff. I am afraid it’s going to pass. It will result in a huge increase in governmental censorship of the Internet, requiring all American ISPs to block certain domains, thus depriving Americans of access to “censored”...

  • Re: Senators Want To Put People In Jail For Embedding YouTube Videos

    [quote user="Wunderwaffe"]I'm a bit confused by the reason behind this proposed piece of legisation. A part of me says that this law will do nothing to prevent, stop or have others think twice about capturing, sharing or uploading streamed videos. The other says that the markets can do...

  • Re: Two arguments in favor of IP

    [quote user="Eugene"]The point is that homesteading is also a process of creation. You gain ownership over a resource if you manage to make something useful out of it . Intellectual work is another form of creation, and I believe property rights should encompass intellectual creation as well...

  • Does this make anyone else sick? Domain Seizures

    I saw that this website has been seized by none other than Homeland Security. The website use to link people to streams that others are broadcasting. Similar to how Google links people to other sites. Now when you try to search for on Google you will find that...

  • Re: Wouldn't IP be legal in an anarcho-capitalist society?

    In the spirit of Stephan Kinsella's philosophy concerning the invalidity of Intellectual Property, I requested taking his course on this subject through the Mises Academy for free--just a download of the lecture is all I wanted. The reply was that the course is not free. So much for upholding your...

  • Wouldn't IP be legal in an anarcho-capitalist society?

    First off, I haven't read Kinsella's book on IP, so if he's already addressed that on his book I'll know next week when I read his book. But if I wrote a book and said to every customer that buys it: "On buying this book you agree on only using it for (insert list of things that...
