What is Copyright?, por Peter Saint-Andre.
«A friend of mine, with whom I agree on a great many intellectual matters, recently sent me the manuscript of a book he is writing. He is a strong advocate of individual rights and a principled opponent of government per se, since he argues that government force cannot help but violate individual rights. So I was surprised to find, right there on page one of his manuscript, the phrase "Copyright 2007. All rights reserved."
What is copyright? Usually it is considered a form of intellectual property. But that raises a further question. What is property? Are intellectual creations a form of property? If so, exactly how?»
