Ultimately all aspects of our world that can be owned should be owned; "public property" is a contradiction in terms (noted Rand)
Ownership creates accountability and value in the marketplace, as well as efficient allocation of resources
Duplication without conflict (i.e., using one's own property) is the main principle for understanding the fallacy of IP
Fraud charges don't rely on IP, because they deal with deceptive transactions (lack of disclosure) and thus invalid title transfers
