One issue that I’ve thought about recently is copyright and patent law. Both subsets of law deal with the same issue of intellectual property. Within the free market community, there’s a pretty substantial difference of opinion regarding the ethical issues related to intellectual property and related laws. I’ve developed my own opinion, but I am curious as to what the opinion is of those who read this blog. I’ve thought about writing a post in IP, but I would like to first gauge my audience…and if enough interest is generated, I will consider writing more about the issue of whether or not IP laws are justified.
Thus, I have constructed a poll. Please vote, share, and comment with your thoughts! I say a lot on this blog, but I would like to hear from you on this issue, particularly if you feel strongly one way or the other. In fact, ideally I would love for this to perhaps spark a (respectful) comment debate if enough people weigh in.
