Techdirt Podcast Episode 232: Copying Is Not Theft

from the it-just-isn't dept

We’ve said it before (and even put it on a t-shirt) and we’ll say it again: copying is not theft, and intellectual “property” is anything but. In September, the Niskanen Center published an excellent paper exploring this issue and explaining why IP is a misnomer — and this week we’ve got one of the authors of that paper, Daniel Takash, to discuss in more detail why property is simply the wrong lens for looking at copyrights and patents.
