Podcast episode from Australian podcast The Voluntary Life (which I appeared on previously in 2010; see Author Interview: Stephan Kinsella on Against Intellectual Property; see also Against Intellectual Property: A Follow Up Discussion):
11 FEBRUARY 2013An episode about the problems with Intellectual Property, from the perspective of an entrepreneur. I started off thinking that IP is an integral and necessary part of entrepreneurship. I thought that it would be very important for my business. I have now come to see IP law as something that:
- prevents innovation,
- is immoral,
- promotes conflict,
- diverts resources to unproductive uses
- and is ultimately unnecessary for making money from ideas.
