I would like to enter into a discussion which seeks to find free
market solutions to the present problems of Internet lawlessness,
problems such as spam, viruses, and abuse of intellectual property.
I write to ask if anyone on this list can point me to such a
discussion, forum, or blog. I am considering starting a blog for this
purpose, but first I want to know what already exists.
The discussion I seek will be roughly the overlap of the following
- network protocols
- economics, and specifically transactions costs
- free market business plans (i.e. NOT intervention by the state)
- property rights
- spontaneous order
The purpose of this list (ietf-smtp(_at_)imc(_dot_)org) relates somewhat to what
I am seeking. But there are differences. I believe it would be
inappropriate to start an extended discussion of my topic on this
list. I ask mainly if anybody can point me to existing discussions
which relate more closely to the topic I outline.
