A breach of contract is exactly that, a breach of contract. If I get the blueprints through a torrent and build a house with them, then tough luck for the architect as I had no such agreement with him.

If knowledge and creativity were common this wouldn't be a problem. To the people who say this would kill jobs/capitalism/whatever, no, it would just make those things more meaningful and less money oriented and more people oriented.

The reality is that they way people make money off if ideas, concepts, and information has changed. Draftsmen are a dime a dozen now, musicians don't need producers and nice studios, film buffs don't need to buy DVDs or pay $9 for a movie ticket. The market will shift to compensate for these realities, barring significant interference from the gov. Importantly though, Wealth is not being destroyed but distributed differently. Industry will diversify and new niche market will spring up. All of this will push new faster bigger better ideas forward.

Capitalism is stress adaptive. It will grow where it needs and die where it doesn't need.
Elimination of IP rights will end the protection of industries in a cap. System and force growth and adaptation.

As I stated before, laws can't protect IP, and any law that says it can is protecting something else.

ETA: I don't think I understood what you were saying. Sorry haha
