If you are for small-gov't and for an ever-diminishing gov't presence in all markets (including self-defense) then you CANNOT be in favor of IP-Rights (enforced by law or force-agency).
IP-Rights GROW gov't size-scope-reach
For Gov't to protect IP-Property internationally it must collude with foreign gov't -- it must increase "politicking" -- it must create new laws and rules for our courts -- this increases educational costs as more rules-laws for study -- on and on.
For Gov't to protect IP-Property at-home it must have a greater internet presence, power to shut down sites, power to access usernames, and more men-women to make the physical arrests.
Grows Courts -- Grows Law Education Costs -- Grows Police Force
Thus Grows Gov't
If you are for SMALL-GOV'T you cannot therefore be in favor of IP-Rights.
