Free-Market Analysis: Well, here we have an example of two "big brains" – respected free-market commentators – that have decidedly different opinions when it comes to intellectual property.
In fact, a feedbacker pointed out that we should have asked the free-market economist Robert Wenzel about his views on intellectual property when we interviewed him. His interview ran this past Sunday.
That same day, Mr. Wenzel posted a short rumination on his blog (Economic Policy Journal) that was aimed at making Stephen Kinsella look hypocritical. This debate between the two men is not just intellectual but is also becoming "personal."
