Intellectual Property

Eugene Volokh wrote an excellentpost the other day arguing that intellectual property has more in common with tangible property than many people claim.

He doesn’t claim they’re identical, or declare what the best approach towards protecting intellectual property rights is, or even if there should be any such protection. But, the argument helps to keep us honest and forces us to acknowledge that this is not an easy issue to resolve.

For instance, see Lawrence Solum wrestle with the ideas involved here.
