Kinsella on This Week in Law discussing IP, Net Neutrality

Yesterday I was a Guest panelist on Denise Howell’s This Week in Law, Episode 97, entitled “God Creates. We Patent.” TWiL is part of Leo Laporte’s impressive and growing private TWiT (This Week in Tech) netcast network (I regularly listen to the TWiT network’s This Week in Tech, MacBreak Weekly, and TWiL, in addition to my some of my other favorite podcasts, such as Mises podcasts, Lew Rockwell, and the Slate Culture Gabfest and Slate Political Gabfest.)

In addition to Howell and me, there were two other IP/tech lawyers. We had a very civil and wide-ranging discussion of a number of topics, from the Google vs. Bing “search cheating” dispute, Internet access rights as “human rights,” abolishing IP and gene patents, defensive patent publishing, lawyers as vigorous representatives of their clients’ interests, and more (most of the topics we discussed are linked on Howell’s Delicious bookmarks page for that episode).

I already knew Howell was a very good host, having seen the show before, but I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised at how tolerant and even libertarian-leaning the other lawyers were of my very radical anti-state, anti-IP views. We had a very good conversation and the other panelists were very receptive to my outspoken libertarian stance. Maybe there is hope!

The following are the top aphrodisiacs that can be taken by themselves or used as ingredients in male enhancement supplements:

1. Damiana
Found in Mexico and the southern part of the United States, Damiana is known as a libido enhancer for both men and women.

2. Epimedium
Also called Horny Goat Weed, Epimedium is used as a natural treatment for erectile dysfunction. Legend has it that this herb was discovered by a Chinese goat herder who noticed that his flock had increased sexual activity after ingesting the weed.

3. Ginkgo Biloba
Better known as a brain enhancer, Ginkgo Biloba is also used to treat impotence because it can help enhance the effects of nitric oxide, a natural compound in your body that relaxes artery walls to allow more blood to enter your penis.

4. Ginseng
Ginseng has been used as an aphrodisiac for thousands of years and helps revitalize the entire body.

5. L- arginine
Known as nature’s Viagra, L-arginine is an amino acid that helps increase nitric oxide production. Cashews, dairy products, green vegetables, oatmeal, peanuts, and seeds are some of the foods that are rich in L-arginine.

6. Maca
Ancient Incan warriors took Maca before going to war to increase their strength. After the battle, they were forbidden to take it in order to protect the captive women from their increased sex drive.

7. Muira Puama
A shrub native to Brazil, Muira Puama has long been used as an effective aphrodisiac and nerve stimulant in South American folk medicine. It helps improve libido and sexual function.

8. Tongkat Ali
Found in Southeast Asia, Tongkat Ali helps boost testosterone levels and increase arousal and sperm quality.

9. Tribulus Terrestris
Tribulus Terrestris has been long used in the ancient Chinese and Indian medicine to improve sexual desire and potency in men.

10. Yohimbe Bark Extract
Yohimbe is an evergreen tree found in Cameroon, the Congo, Gabon, and Nigeria. Yohimbe Bark Extract is widely promoted online and in health food stores as a natural aphrodisiac to increase libido and treat erectile dysfunction.
