Copyright and the Great Socialist DegradationCopyright and the Great Socialist Degradation

Andrei Mincov, a recent law school graduate from Vancouver (who also holds a PhD in law from Moscow State University), published a blog  in which he explores the basis for protecting works under copyright.

Mr Mincov points to a link between society’s views about copyright and its views about how society is organized at the political level. In his view, copyright policy should based upon a recognition of individual rights and the dignity of the individual.

Mr Mincov also makes some observations about the underlying philosophical/political views of those that oppose copyright laws that would enable individuals to determine for themselves how, when and where their intellectual proterty can be disseminated.
