LDS Liberty Study Group - October 7th, 2010 - Intellectual Property
Topic - The purpose of this discussion is to understand the true nature of "Intellectual Property". We will discuss the purpose of property rights, contrast intellectual property with real (physical) property, and how intellectual property "rights" are enforced. We will not be discussing whether or not a society should grant and protect intellectual property rights. Resources are provided that explore the nature and desirability of intellectual property rights. These are comprehensive, and should be studied with the intent of determining whether or not intellectual property rights should be defended by liberty-lovers. I personally believe they should not.
