"Are you blind?"
No, "out_of_the_ass" is not blind, just willfully ignorant; he refuses to believe that people can innovate/learn/profit without "Imaginary Property" protections, so he parrots his *AA heroes/masters/(employers?) and denigrates anything anyone else has to say on the site.
Footnote: He also likes to conflate Mike and his positions with those of any/all of the other contributors on the site; apparently he thinks they/we are all sockpuppets.
Oh goody! /s
An RJR comment: (http://www.techdirt.com/blog/innovation/articles/20100429/0902539238.shtml#c76), I had almost forgoten about him.
Now I wish I had managed it, feels like losing "The Game", and now I have lost "The Game" too, dammit.
"Oh, then exactly which IP rights does Mike support?"
1) First, to clarify "IP" (Intellectual Property), the term itself is troublesome, it is a propaganda term which should never be used, because merely using it, no matter what you say about it, presumes it makes sense. It doesn't actually make sense, because it lumps together several different laws that are more different than similar.
2) I would guess (I'm not going to speak for him), but based on what he has said previously, that he supports those "IP" laws (NOT a right) that actually do the job "To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts".
