If you own real estate, you pay property tax.
Everything you say, write, sing, gesture or code that has expressive content is instantly copyrighted.
You don’t pay property tax on copyrights. If you did, your bill would go up every time you opened your mouth, from birth to death.
If copyright should be considered a natural right with the same authority and control as owning a home, shouldn’t we tax it?
