Why the term 'intellectual property' is a seductiv

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on October 29, 2004 08:10 PM
I wholeheartedly agree. I have never liked the term copyright either. I tell everyone here in Puerto Rico to use the term "author rights", so that everyone remembers that the real important person is the creator, the author, and not the copyright holder. which, in the case of music is usually a greedy publisher who obtain the rights of composers through scams. As a music publisher who cannot get of the ground and the son of a composer who wrote great music but was hardly paid by the publishers to whom he assigned his songs or the record companies that used his songs I know the subject.

Thank you for your article.
