The use of terms like steal and theft is flat out wrong. Even the SCOTUS agrees with me on that

quote:

at least fricking paraphrase the guy, lazy ass


Jeffrey Tucker (Author, Economist) and Stefan Molyneux (Author, Software Programmer) debate a software programmer on the validity of IP.

Jeffrey Tucker was the VP of the Mises Institute (Which gives away all of their books for free) and is now the President of Laissez Faire books (Where the books are licensed under a Creative commons license)

Stefan Molyneux puts out such an enormous amount of content it is impossible to list. All of his books are free. All of his podcasts are free. All of his videos are free.

I guess the most secure and stable operating system isn't enough of a breakthrough

nope, not enough to disprove the rule

especially when people are willing to pay so much for other OS's when this one is so great and free, btw

although again, i do not mean to downplay its value

it's just that it has to be obvious that the cost to progress from having no right to profit from your intellectual creations will have a bad effect on the costly type of research/advancement

He's like mograyback with posting economics videos and never giving opinions, but worse.


Jesus Christ.

I have listed out my opinions in thread after thread after thread.

The fricking guy said he wanted to see instances where people gave up their IP and I posted a fricking example.

believe it or not i am very sympathetic to mises

but i am not impressed by an advocacy group giving their shite out for free, sorry. that does nothing to limit their influence, and how much revenue are they really forgoing in exchange for their ideas getting put out there for free?

In Molyneux's case that is a fair price. Are you under the impression Molyneux works for free though? Really?

They are actually pretty profitable (Although Mises Institute is a non-profit).

The point is, they've adapted their business models and remained profitable while giving information out for free.

And Molyneux isn't an "advocacy group". He is a stay at home dad who depends on his content to provide for himself.

that isn't what i said, although perhaps i was less than clear

i wanted to see real scientific/tech advancement, breakthroughs, in instances where the profit motive (as protected by IP) is gone.

So bit coins really have no value in the future? Which makes sense as barter becomes easier.

So I can steal something from people and they still have full use of what I "stole" from them? Learn something new on the Poli Board every day.

Josh, just remember that we don't have to convince any one of the futility of IP. It will naturally die on it's own.

I have accepted that truth in regards to the state also. But I felt like debating the topic to brush up on my skills.

Remember Tucker isn't with the LvMI any more. He runs Lasseiz Faire Books, which is for profit.
