My friend David Koepsell, an attorney and philosopher who serves on the Advisory Board of C4SIF, has written and spoken a good deal on patent and copyright. Below I collect some of his essential work in this regard:
- Innovation and Nanotechnology: Converging Technologies and the End of Intellectual Property (UK: Bloomsbury Academic, 2011 [pdf]), esp. chaps. 5-6 (posted here with permission of the author; also, the book is published under a CC-BY-NC license; here is Bloomsbury’s free online version)
- “Revising Intellectual Property: Liberating Intellectual Capital,” Innovation, Sustainability, and Development: A New Manifesto, The Hague, NL (Nov. 24 2009; slides [pdf])
- “The Ethical Case Against Intellectual Property” (slides; YouTube)
- See also my posts: David Koepsell: Another Austrian-Influenced IP Opponent and Are Libertarians For Intellectual Property?: Comment on David Koepsell’s “Why I Believe Gene Patenting is Wrong”
