KOL022 | “Libertarian Legal Theory: Property, Conflict, and Society: Lecture 5: Intellectual Property and Related” (Mises Academy, 2011)

Libertarian Legal Theory with Stephan Kinsella

Kinsella on Liberty Podcast: Episode 022.

This is lecture 5 (of 6) of my 2011 Mises Academy course “Libertarian Legal Theory: Property, Conflict, and Society.” I’ll release the remaining lectures here in the podcast in upcoming days.

This lecture’s topic is “Intellectual Property and Related,” and discusses:

  • Overview of types of IP
  • Origins of IP
  • The nature of property rights, role of scarcity, and the function of the market.
  • Pro-IP arguments: utilitarian and deontological
  • Defamation
  • Free Speech and Property Rights (Rothbard)
  • Proposed Reforms
  • Imagining a post-IP world

For slides for all six lectures, plus extensive hyperlinked suggested reading material, see this Libertarian Standard post. For a listing of the syllabus and topics covered in each lecture, see this Mises blog post.

For more information, see my Mises Daily article “Introduction to Libertarian Legal Theory,” and Danny Sanchez’s post Study Libertarian Legal Theory Online with Stephan Kinsella.

Update: The videos of all six lectures are now available here; the video for this particular lecture is embedded below, plus the Q&A session.
