I wasn’t having that so I challenged her with:
“@auntysarah Piracy, counterfeiting and patent infringement destroy the incentive to innovate.”
We had a ding-dong discussion for far too long until Sarah tweeted:
“@nipclaw This has been very interesting & we’ve probably annoyed mutual followers! I have to stop tho because my hangover is intensifying:-(“
Sarah made some very good points and I agreed with much of what she said. The IP system does not work as well as it should. Especially for private inventors and SME. But whereas Sarah wanted a root and branch solution which would include the end of lawyers I want reform.
