Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 297.

This is my appearance on Guy Swann’s Bitcoin Audible podcast, Chat#46. From his shownotes:

Stephan Kinsella joins us today for a fascinating discussion on the morality and concept of property in the digital age. Is it possible to own Bitcoin? Do we legally own it, or are we simply the ones in control via the rules of the Bitcoin system?

I’ve made this point many times.

See for example this Facebook post:

As noted recently, I’ve just joined the Libertarian Party, after more than 35 years of being a small-l libertarian.
As noted there, my main goal is to persuade the party to adopt a clear platform plank calling for abolition of patent and copyright law. As I have in the past (https://www.facebook.com/nskinsella/posts/10155071618778181)

Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 295.

This is my appearance on Jimmy Song’s podcast Bitcoin Fixes This (ep. 7).

Bitcoin Fixes This #7: Intellectual Property

Stephan Kinsella is a patent attorney, Austrian economist and author of Against Intellectual Property. We talk about IP law’s monarchist origins and how it’s a tool for monopoly. Stephan also tells us about how information is not the same thing as physical property and how IP and Bitcoin both suffer from labor theories of value.

KOL294 | Burning Boots Liberty – IP and Abandoning Property

Play

Kinsella on Liberty Podcast, Episode 294.

This is my appearance on the Burning Boots podcast, ep. 53. We had lots of fun. From their shownotes:

We have Stephan Kinsella on this week to hang out and joke around then we get into some more thought provoking topics and questions for him from the listener mailbag! He’s one of the most prominent Hoppeans around right now and frankly we found him to be a little under-educated for our prestigious intellectual podcast, but hopefully you can forgive him anyway. Follow him, read him, listen to his podcast, and definitely listen to his debates because they usually rock.

Before we bring Kinsella on though, we take about 30 minutes to talk about the state of Kenosha and the collapse in general and Davie tells us about how the doctor that cut his balls off might secretly be based.

Burning Question for this week:
Can property be implicitly abandoned?

Outro song this week (chosen by Stephan) is The Eagle Has Landed by Saxon
