Brian Martin presents the case against intellectual property, approaching the issue from a different background to most of us in the free software movement.

This is chapter three of Brian Martin's book Information Liberation, which is now online in its entirety. (Other chapters cover defamation, privacy, whistleblowing, and more.)

The main arguments are also summarized by Geshan Manandhar in Problems with Intellectual Property

Danny Yee says: "You'll note that Martin confuses "freeware", "free software", and "public domain", but that's my fault, since I should have picked this up in my proofreading."
