defending the right to innovate
Monopoly corrupts. Absolute monopoly corrupts absolutely.
The modern police state will not be ushered in by government, but rather by media conglomerates intent on destroying civil rights in the name of protecting intellectual property.
How best to incentivise the development of new business models?
Make those traditional and legitimate business models that are struggling unviable through impositions of expensive licenses and other duties.
People then have to explore novel and illegitimate business models.
Didn't they impose a draconian buggy whip manufacturing tax just as the popularity of the automobile was becoming clear?
State legislators are in such a hurry to kill off the old in order to usher in the new.
The funny thing is, I don't need to expend an iota of effort on lobbying, nor spend a penny funding legislative campaigns...
