Houdini, Elon Musk, IP and Innovation

In my journey to An-Cap philosophy, one of the hardest things for me to give up was intellectual property (IP) laws and using the state as the enforcer. Once I began to analyze the ethical foundations of ideas and learning I began to come around to the thinking that there should be no IP laws. (Still struggle with this from time to time)

Here I illustrate two vastly different approaches to intellectual property. What do Houdini and Elon Musk have in common? They both have dealt with valuable ideas without the help of an artificial state-enforced monopoly.
