Freeing Software (medium.com)

What do folks think of my current strategy: never ever use the horrible euphemistic IP term, and instead use the terms "Intellectual Monopoly Laws" or "Intellectual Slavery Laws"?

I think Free Software needs to stand up for the truth. I think Intellectual Monopoly is a fine and accurate term, but I think anytime someone uses the IP term you need to counter with the Intellectual Slavery term, because IP laws don't have any logical connection to property but instead are a restriction on someone's freedoms--which is by definition slavery.

I think it's time to go on offense against the IS industry.
