Randy Barnett, Anarchy, and Intellectual “Property”

Law Professor Randy Barnett spoke on the topic Anarchy is not Chaos last night. Pretty good. That’s a long story, but he mentioned something a student said about intellectual “property”, and the argument that without protection of such “property” in the form of copyright, artists would have no incentive to create. Hmm, recording technology has been around for about 100 years, it’s amazing that any art was produced before the invention of the phonograph, the copy machine, and the camera. Just amazing. Those artists must have survived somehow.
