  •  Libertarians and Copyright (none)

    In my experience, a lot of traditional libertarians are against "intellectual property" laws, as they're government-imposed monopolies. Objectivist-type libertarians, the sort that virtually worship Ayn Rand, support them because they strengthen the concept of property. (And, with many of the Objectivist-type nutbars I've encountered, because they increase the power of corporations... Don't ask me how they reconcile that with Rand's supposed philosophy...)

    Its like the media listened to Weird Al's "Dare to be Stupid" and said "Yes! This is how the world should be!"
