How does this fit into his anarchistic framework? The only obvious
possibility is that the copyrights and patents would be enforced by
contracts between PPLs, which is fine by me. What I object to is
enforcement of copyright and patent by governments so that companies don't
have to pay for it. Without government-enforced copyright we'd probably be
running Linux rather than Windows...
