What will replace patent laws and copyright laws if anti-establishment movements suggest demolishing the current system?
How will a society (Capitalist, Anarchist, Communist ,etc) COMPENSATE intellectuals (Allow them to earn, provide them resources, etc)? Saying that it is for the greater good of the society, implies that the intellectuals will do the work and the rest will take it for free. So that is unacceptable.
Physical goods are protected from theft and the person who spent time on them deserves compensation and maybe profit (communists will not allow profit, capitalists expects highest profits). Doesn't an intellectual deserve the same if his idea can change the world?
