Intellectual Property Debate

Published on

I recently have become very interested in this topic. I read this review which lead me this free book. So far I have only read the introduction, but I am eager to continue. A few months ago I read Against Intellectual Property which was very intriguing, but left me wondering about practical application This new book makes a bold general claim:

Since there is no evidence that intellectual monopoly achieves the desired purpose of increasing innovation and creation, it has no benefits. So there is no need for society to balance the benefits against the costs. This leads us to our final conclusion: intellectual property is an unnecessary evil.
