i think we don't need it...

I accept,
Lets state what Intellectual property is. It has to deal with copyrights with music, works of art, poetry, and even trade logos.(http://www.alllaw.com...) The reason that this is important is because without them you would see an increase of plagerism like no other. The reason for this is because the law is here to protect us from us, stupidity, and others. Without this I could go copy this whole album and use it as my own, but with my own singing. This shows a problem because there wouldn't be any way to make money (the music artists). Doing so would collapse the whole American Music making industry and you'd see sites like youtube and metrolyrics crash. You may think that this my not be a problem but this has a snow ball affect. Once it's music then it's products, then the Stock Market, then the world economy would crash.

Reasons for voting decision: I'm going to go out on a limb here and assert, "i think we don't need it..." did not meet the burden of proof. Thus, arguments to Pro, and conduct to Pro for the forfeit.
