Rothbard was completely out to lunch on this one. If people are serious about copyrights they need to make people sign an *explicit* contract agreeing to not duplicate the product upon purchase. The reason they won't is because they know it would repel customers. "I have to sign a contract just to buy a damn cd?! Fuck it then." So instead they try to sneak it in in small print on the package and claim that this constitute an agreement that's 'implicit'. What if it said "You have to kill yourself upon purchase" at the bottom of the package? Would everyone who bought the album be legally obligated to commit suicide?
