Copyright Law vs. Intellectual Property

Richard Stallman, at E-Commerce News, pens his own interpretations of the meaning and purpose of Copyright Law vs. Intellectual Property, while analyzing yet another article discussing the same.
An interesting, and worthwhile read, particularly considering the recent battle going on over the issue.

From article:
"What the Constitution says is that copyright law and patent law are optional.... They are not rights that their holders are entitled to; they are artificial privileges that we might, or might not, want to hand out to encourage people to do what we find useful."

You will find "Don't Let 'Intellectual Property' Twist Your Ethos" here.
