Subject: Re: blurb for Christopher Kelty’s forthcoming book?
I’ve had a chance to look at some of the book text.
It seems to make interesting points, and it could be
among the better books about this subject.
However, it has one very important flaw: it refers often to
“intellectual property” as if that were a coherent thing. This is a
major flaw. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/not-ipr.html.
So I will not be able to give you an endorsement.
