Publisher's Summary

Everyone who is serious about ideas now has to deal with the issue of "intellectual property", especially given the advent of digital media and the state's war on the supposed violators of the intellectual rights of others. The situation has at once become very hopeful, with more sharing of ideas than ever before in history, and extremely grim, with the federal government pressuring every internet-service provider to act as proxy enforcers of an unjust law - and twisting the arms of developing countries to adopt draconian, Western-style IP law. 

This debate, however, involves more than just IP issues. The discussion surrounding this topic has further clarified other issues, like the character of goods and property, the existence and centrality of nonscarce goods in economic life, and the role of learning in the evolution of society. This partially accounts for why the IP topic is so hot: it causes us to revisit fundamental issues over property, ownership, competition, and other areas we've mistakenly taken for granted. This short book is a summary of some fundamental ideas held by Jeffrey Tucker and Stephen Kinsella on these important topics.
