Intangible Property Can Be Stolen When It Is Clad in the "Avatar" of Book, a CD, etc.

Dear Letitia and Thomas,

Libertarianism is not talking about profiting financially.

If you wish to learn more about the libertarian perspective on IP, read one,
if not both, of these seminal works on the subject:

1. "Against Intellectual Property," article by Stephan Kinsella,

2. Against Intellectual Monopoly, book by Michele Boldrin and David Levine, (review).

Warm regards, Michael

I was talking about the detriment to a person when someone else profits from their work but doesn't pay them anything for such profit -- not about financial profit in general.

Should Mozart have paid the inventor of stringed instruments?


Even if one knew who that person was?
