I was interviewed a couple nights ago by Redmond Weissenberger, Director of the Ludwig von Mises Institute of Canada. We discussed the Apple v. Samsung patent decision and related matters. In Part 2, we discussed a variety of matters related to intellectual property, including Steve Jobs and Ayn Rand, Quentin Tarantino, China, J.K. Rowling and the Soviet Union.
