 From Richard M Stallman, twit.  Too stupid to figure out how to 
subscribe to the TFUG list.  I have edited the error messages out.


Can you please forward my response to the mailing list?

    In the US, the term "Intellectual Property" has been around a very long 
    time.  When I was working for Hughes Aircraft/Raytheon, they offered  
    courses on IP several times a year.


Can you find out the year in which they started?


    Intellectual Property is a course for first semester law students.


That is a shame, but the question is not about what they say _today_.

See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/not-ipr.html
for the explanation of why the term "intellectual property"
is biased and misleading, and should never be used.
