Libertarian law

In Law, Property Rights and Air Pollution (pdf), Murray Rothbard writes about criminal and tort law from a libertarian viewpoint. He also talks about how the laws regarding libel are a restriction on freedom of speech, how property rights in airwaves can be implemented, difference between aggression/ trespass and nuisance, homesteading and easement on pollution – noise and air etc. The essay clarified a lot of minor doubts that I had on the above mentioned issues.

I have now changed my opinion regarding laws relating to slander. There is so such thing as the “right to your reputation”. And K.M.’s post on “Freedom of Speech” convinced me about it.
