I’m not particularly swayed by theoretical pros/cons one way or another about what SHOULD or OUGHT to be enforced in a free market. However, I will say there is no case for political protection of IP or copyright and that the State protection of copyright/IP in the digital, information age is a primary concern in terms of liberty. In fact, I think future IP/Copyright is a #1 predictor of the type of governments we will have in the future
