Intellectual Property - the contract of - and the Theft of Copying
Submitted by Mark Hubbard on Sat, 2010-01-16 02:35
Out of interest, where do SOLOists stand on the issue of intellectual property, file copying and file sharing.
I'm having a falling out with Mises.org over this issue, as that site constantly argues for theft.
The below is my post to Stephen Kinsella's post 'Copying Is Not Theft':
My post was as follows, though the Cory Doctorow link contains most of my thoughts on the subject. If nothing else, a show of hands here: is copying theft, or is it not? Why?
Per the continuing debate down the Mises thread, I think justifications of 'copying is not theft' is sophistry of the worse sort.
