Does the public benefit from privately-owned goods? or The new anti-IP Bolshevism

  • RSS Feed
Back in February, I gave a speech in Washington DC before the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on intellectual property entitled "The New Anti-IP Bolsheviks."

The point of the speech is that today we are having the very same debate about property that we had during the 20th Century; namely, is private ownership of property antithetical to public benefit? Or must property be taken out of private hands in order to benefit the public?

Only this time, the debate is concerned with intellectual property, not real property.

Anyway, the text of the speech is up here. Video of the speech will be posted soon, and will be noted.
