Main Question or Discussion Point
What should libertarians think about file sharing?
Its considered 'Intellectual property'.Libertarians respect personal property, but can music be regarded private property?
So they think that they should be allowed to read a centuries old fairy tale to the children at bed time without buying a separate client access license for each child? (And a performance license for the act of reading it allowed.)I would reason that a typical libertarian believes that if he or she buys a song, he or she rightly owns it and should legally be able to play and share it with friends, but no further than the extent to which they might share non-copyable goods, such as food or games.
