Why Intellectual Property Does Not Exist, Part 3502

A nice point from Mike Masnick:

Those who insist that copyright is the same as real property break their own rule by also insisting that they retain perpetual rights to the good, even after it's been sold. If copyright were like real property, after the creator sold it, the buyer could do whatever they want with it, including giving it out for free.

A hit, a very palpable hit.
