OK, This is Just Ridiculous

I’M ONE WHO BELIEVES that copyright and other IP ought to be treated the same as physical property. Sure, there are problems with it, but there seems to be far too much state and social intermeddling between IP owners and their property.

But, at the same time, I have strong reservations about corporations’ being permitted to own intellectual property. I believe IP ough to belong to the actual intellects which created it. This perspective has a long and troubled tradition. But, essentially, I believe the poet or the bard should have the right to do with his or her work as he or she sees fit.
