Surge In Litecoin Mining Leads To Graphics Card Shortage

Hugonz Re: An Honest Question (213 comments)

Consider tungsten or platinum, they're theoretical competitors to gold and silver and comparable in their abundance, yet they never took off as currency. Same thing with altcoins: there's history, network effects, etc. The important thing with money is that people think it will be accepted tomorrow.

What Can I Do About Book Pirates?

Hugonz It's changed now (987 comments)

Hi Peter,

The information in books is nonscarce, in that it can be replicated at very little cost. It will be economically infeasible to try to stop distribution. The best way for you to get the upper hand is to come out as the legitimate, moral author of this; publicly and for yourself. You should set up a website and come out with a suggested fee for donations. There are other ideas too, like having previews and/or early releases for subscribers.

Of course you would still charge for the dead-tree book. Take a look at what Stefan Molyneux has been doing at www.freedomainradio.com. He lives entirely off the donations and subscriptions.

Hope this helps

Columnist Fired For Reviewing Pirated Movie

Hugonz Re:ha ha (466 comments)

Yes, it is fair use, and that's why he's probably not gonna be prosecuted. But fired, hell yeah the Company will surely and rightfully fire him!

Don't take me wrong. I believe Copyrights and patents are not real property. This has really nothing to do with the legality of downloading and watching The Origins Movie, but with company policy and the internal, private penalties you incur, such as getting fired.

It's like some McDonald's manager praising the Whopper....

Feds Demand Prison For Guns N' Roses Uploader

Hugonz Re:Gun Point? (590 comments)

This post is so misleading and so wrong... you managed to put together all the fallacies there are about intellectual property.

Please take a look at this, and start forgetting about the labor theory of value (or property)

A Teacher Asking Students To Destroy Notes?

Hugonz IP nuts (931 comments)

Reminds me of the stories about Andrew Galambos. He was nuts about IP, at the point of changing his name because it was the same as his father's.

He's been rightfully forgotten, but if anyone wants to take a peek at how brain-dead this whole IP thing is, here's a famous essay by Harry Browne.
