Talent wants to be free: why we should learn to love leaks, raids, and free riding / Orly Lobel.  Yale University Press, 2013.

HB95.L63 2013

 

Talent Wants to be Free is a law and economics study of information ownership.  The author makes a provocative case against much of current intellectual property law, providing food for thought whether one agrees or disagrees with her case.  In either instance, this book is a useful reminder of the importance of considering the purpose and effects of the law rather than accepting the legal status quo uncritically.
