One such literature is Bourbon for Breakfast: Living outside the statist quo by Jeffrey Tucker of Mises Institute in Alabama. The (3rd) chapter on Technology is about IP, although the focus is on copyright of books.
I have earlier discussed another anti-IP article by Jock Coats of Adam Smith Institute in London in my earlier paper, On intellectual property abolition, part 3. I noted there,
Do the anti-IP people consider a molecule or an atom as "non-tangible"?... for me, a newly-invented molecule (or compound of molecules), say a drug molecule, tire molecule, beer molecule, etc. are tangibles.... Some anti-IP libertarians can unwittingly merge ideologically with the leftists and socialists in arguing for the eradication of IPR in drugs. The higher price of new and patented drugs compared to off-patent and older ones is, for them, proof of the evil of IPR. And this is another dangerous mistake that free marketers from whatever shade should avoid committing. Pricing is a private property right. It can never be communal or government right.
Pacific Rim Policy Exchange in Sydney, Australia, one of the panel discussions was on IP, Jobs and the Economy. One of two speakers there was Michael Williams (in this picture) of Gilbert + Tobin law office in Sydney. His paper was entitled Resisting populist calls for a wind back of IP laws and showing leadership in the promotion of IP laws.
Mr. Williams' concern though, is more with the socialists and anti-capitalist individuals and groups, especially academics, who regard private property rights in general, and IPR in particular, as extension of exploitation and mass disenfranchisement by capitalism. He did not discuss the equally anti-IP sentiment by some libertarians.
But I think there is nothing in the IP laws that says "All rock songs (or all action movies, all science fiction books, all anti-hypertension drugs, all racetrack tires,...) are copyrighted by ______ company for its exclusive use, sale, transfer, for __ years." What the IP laws say is that "one copyright for each rock song by each rock band/singer" and there are 1,000 or 100,000 rock bands and singers worldwide producing 100,000 or 1 million rock songs.
The security of an IPR is reserved for those inventors and composers/authors who think they are better recognized and compensated (financially, intellectually, culturally, etc.) if an IPR is granted upon them.
Mr. Michaels concluded that "The recognition of IPR is consistent with the pursuit of democracy, property rights and economic development... Now is the time to strengthen IP laws to drive technological development in the digital age and to provide certainty for investment in the future."
Amen to that.
