And then there are the economists that say that copyright and patent laws are "stifling innovation and threatening the global economy." "From a public policy view, we'd ideally like to eliminate patent and copyright laws altogether," reports one of the economists. Of course, their book is for sale on Amazon. Is it ok with them to copy it? UPDATE: Apparently, yes. You may view the book chapters online. Thanks to Karl Dubost for the update.
