Objectivists on IP
As I noted in a recent post, Objectivist had written a critique of libertarian arguments against intellectual property. At the time the article was not available online, but it has since been posted: Don’t Steal This Article. I have not had time to reply in detail, but let’s just say, for now, I think the critique--while a decent attempt, about as good as you can do given some of Rand’s premises--is confused and utterly unpersuasive.

What is the Mises Institute?

The Mises Institute is a non-profit organization that exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian School of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. 

Non-political, non-partisan, and non-PC, we advocate a radical shift in the intellectual climate, away from statism and toward a private property order. We believe that our foundational ideas are of permanent value, and oppose all efforts at compromise, sellout, and amalgamation of these ideas with fashionable political, cultural, and social doctrines inimical to their spirit.
