Book Description

The right of individuals to own property is one of the cornerstones of our Constitution. But could the founding fathers have anticipated that this right would be extended to a person's creativity, or even their biological makeup? What about property rights on the Internet? This book will show readers how America's unique and complicated property laws came about.
