Jeffrey Tucker: If You Believe in IP, How Do You Teach Others?

“My lectures are protected by state common law and federal copyright law. They are my own original expression and I record them at the same time that I deliver them in order to secure protection. Whereas you are authorized to take notes in class thereby creating a derivative work from my lecture, the authorization extends only to making one set of notes for your own personal use and no other use. You are not authorized to record my lectures, to provide your notes to anyone else or to make any commercial use of them without express prior permission from me.”

You can make “no other use” of what you learn? Really? That sort of smashes the whole point of education, doesn’t it?
