From: J. Menicucci To: The LRG


Our government does not have to recognize and protect intellectual property, but I agree with the Founding Fathers that it makes sense to do so. The question then becomes how and to what extent intellectual property should have protection. I am not sure whether you are arguing for a free right of copying and trading [...]

Something Old and Someone New. LRG and Napster


Shame on all of you. And you call yourselves Conservatives? Let’s talk about what the customer can do now (without Internet technology) that is perfectly legal. I can buy a CD (or cassette) and make a copy of that CD on a cassette tape to listen to in my car. I can also make a [...]
