TheFreemanOnline.org | It’s important to understand the origins of these concepts. As law professor Eric E. Johnson notes, “The monopolies now understood as copyrights and patents were originally created by royal decree, bestowed as a form of favoritism and control.

TheMedicalPodcast.com | Why are medical devices protected by patent law while medical procedures are exempt? And what about the government’s use of compulsory licenses to force pharmaceutical companies to produce certain drugs like CIPRO. These are two medical-related examples in a long list of arcane exceptions and arbitrary details written in to intellectual property (IP) law. It is commonly believed that IP rights, such as patents, copyrights, and trademarks are necessary to foster innovation and protect the interests of the people and companies that create new products and ideas.

TechDirt.com | Could you make the argument that by restricting the use of certain resources and restricting freedom of expression, those laws lead to unethical limitations? Put another way, if intellectual property is causing actual harm, then you could make the claim that there is a moral issue in discussing them — in that the laws of intellectual property, by themselves, are immoral. That is, if taking away IP causes no direct harm, then there’s no moral issue to discuss. But, if leaving them in place does cause harm, then that is a moral issue worth considering. ... - [More]Posted: June 13, 2010 in Videos
Darian Worden | An advanced society requires energy – in the form of fuel or electricity – to power the devices necessary to sustain it.
