COMP7004 Class 09.1

We began our look at Intellectual Property. I asked students to identify the justifications for copyright. All the groups identified the economic rights, but not considered the moral rights. This is to be expected in a common law jurisdiction like Ireland.

We discussed whether Intellectual Property was really "property". We concluded that the were closer than we thought, but mostly because regular property is less tangible that we first imagined.
