Vin Suprynowicz, a libertarian columnist for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which has collaborated with copyright troll righthaven, gives his view of how people who … use information they learned from others … ought to be dealt with:
I have a far lower opinion of thieves than you appear to have. In fact, watching them copy my columns while interpolating their own content and pretending it’s mine, watching them throw small merchants on the verge of bankruptcy by switching price tags and otherwise stealing merchandise below cost, I hate them with a passion. Lawsuits? They should have their goddamned hands cut off and nailed to the wall of City Hall.
The copyright and patent wars are doing what the War on Terror did: separating the real libertarians from those clinging to state institutions.
