Kinsella Speech: Intellectual Property and Libertarianism

Update: KOL013 | “Intellectual Property and Libertarianism,” Mises University 2009

I presented a speech last week at Mises University 2009 on “Intellectual Property and Libertarianism.” The audio is available here; the video will be available later this month. This presentation was different than others I’ve done in the past on IP, partly because, as it for students, I tried to start from the ground up, and also to integrate the proper approach to IP with the essential principles of libertarian political philosophy. Thus part of the talk summarized my view of what libertarianism is, and then applied it to IP; this summary view of the libertarian framework was distilled from a more elaborated version, contained my chapter What Libertarianism Is, which appeared in the recently published Hoppe Festschrift, Property, Freedom and Society. An article based on my speech is forthcoming in Liberty magazine. [update: the article is in the December 2009 issue of Liberty; a version with more notes appeared as “Intellectual Property and Libertarianism,” Mises Daily, Nov. 17, 2009]
