I was a guest on the Bill Handel Show yesterday discussing the libertarian perspective on blackmail, with reference to the Tiger Woods and other cases. (See my post Blackmail should be legal: the case of David Letterman.) We also touched on common law versus legislation [see my Legislation and the Discovery of Law in a Free Society], intellectual property, reputation rights and defamation law, prostitution, and extortion. Handel, though apparently not a libertarian, was a very smart and fair host. The file is here [13:33, 10.4MB, .m4a file]. It it will be up later on the Bill Handel Show podcast.
Fantastic interview. When we lived in Los Angeles we listened to Bill Handel all the time. Periodically we still do; thanks to streaming audio on the internet.
I thing you and Bill could have an extremely entertaining discussion on the absurdity of intellectual property. I look forward to it!

I think you and Bill could have a very entertaining debate in the absurdity of intellectual property. I hope he! p In some banks, there are a new saving program for children. It's a program without administration fee in charge. And the minimum saldo is fewer. Cartus HP

There are plenty of good points here, but I'm not sure that under real-time search being discarded. I agree that it is very important, but not the point of that to show what people are saying today about a topic.http://www.cosmedia.dk/haartab-tabe-haaret
