Intellectual Theft

@JoyceCarolOates tweeting this morning about theft of intellectual property:

Twitter has solved the problem of intellectual property theft by never considering it.  Or copyright. People tend not to be sympathetic with appropriation—i.e., theft—of “intellectual property” who would not allow theft of physical objects. If you create exquisite clay pots, & they are stolen, others would be sympathetic with your loss; if it's “writing”—“music”—sympathy fades.
