96 Entrepreneurship Part 13: IP Is Bad For Business

An episode about the problems with Intellectual Property, from the perspective of an entrepreneur. I started off thinking that IP is an integral and necessary part of entrepreneurship. I thought that it would be very important for my business.  I have now come to see IP law as something that:

  • prevents innovation,
  • is immoral,
  • promotes conflict,
  • diverts resources to unproductive uses
  • and is ultimately unnecessary for making money from ideas.
