    I don't think she was in any way saying that she came up with this all on her own.

    In fact, she wished the shirt was sold by Mark in the original post.

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

        I like a rousing debate. It brings out the truth.

        Trust me, there is nothing more infuriating than a corporation amassing weapons to force people to buy their products.

        I know how you feel.

          You're being hyperbolic and pointlessly divisive with your statements. Corporations copyrighting the color magenta (or whatever) to hinder fair competition are obviously abusing the system. Every regular amateur and professional artist needs and benefits from copyright protection to keep from getting ripped off and losing profit.

            Well I argue that you cannot use a gun and not expect people to abuse the system.
            ^^ Another way to say this is: If you use a gun, people will abuse the system.

            I'm saying this is a praxeological fact, and can be deduced through a priori reasoning.

            Maybe there is some other solution to your problem other than using guns and violence?

                Take the proposition:

                "A system based on jailing humans involuntarily through the use of force will always lead to abuse."

                One could look at this proposition and relate it to empirical evidence and say it was true based on empirical evidence which is a posteriori knowledge.

                However, the nail in the coffin is a priori knowledge which is based on deductive reason. In other words, I can argue through logic and reason why this is always the case.

                I would have to do things like list all possible ways for someone to acquire wealth, and the relative ease for each of those methods and so on to reach a logical conclusion to my argument based upon human nature (or praxeology).

                  okay but i'm staying at the very base principle of 'i drew a smiley face, and it was very good. but someone copied my smiley face and sold little pictures, and they made a lot of money from my picture'

                    I'm wondering how they would be able to make a lot of money from your smiley face if anyone could copy it?

                    Also, just because we use government force to protect intellectual property today, doesn't mean that intellectual property cannot be protected without the use of government force.

                      being sued is getting hit with governmental force?

                        There are ways to resolve disputes without using government force.

                        I think e-bay and paypal have dispute resolution systems which are 100% anarchic for example.

                            Yes, Aaron Burr vs. Alexander Hamilton is my favorite.
