I noted before that There are No Good Arguments for Intellectual Property. A couple of anecdotal factoids confirming this. I’m invited to speak on IP a lot, on occasion to debate; for debates I’m asked to suggest a good opponent. And I am just stumped. I tell you. I don’t know who to suggest.
Also: I was recently invited to contribute the anti-IP chapter, which I have entitled “The Case Against Intellectual Property,” in Handbook of the Philosophical Foundations of Business Ethics (Prof. Dr. Christoph Lütge, ed.; Springer, 2013) (chapter 68, in Part 18, “Property Rights: Material and Intellectual,” Robert McGee, section ed.). I was asked to help identify someone to write the pro-IP chapter. I was scratching my head, but scraped the bottom of the barrel and came up with a couple of the only names I could think of … and even they did not work out. So there may be no pro-IP chapter. Hahaha. silly Intellectual Properteers.
