Bruno Leoni at 101<http://cato.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=98c97f42691d5de57bc944822&id=2c8c41b557&e=ecee660064>

Featuring Roger Pilon, Vice President for Legal Affairs, Cato Institute; Peter Boettke, University Professor of Economics and Philosophy, George Mason University; and Todd J. Zywicki, George Mason University Foundation Professor of Law, George Mason University School of Law. Moderated by Alberto Mingardi, Director General, Istituto Bruno Leoni.

The Italian law scholar Bruno Leoni was a champion of law over legislation. In his classic Freedom and the Law (1961), he presented the case for organic legal systems that adjust to human behavior and against legal systems that attempt to adjust human behavior to fit the needs and desires of the politically powerful. It’s a message still urgently needed today. Please join us for a discussion of Leoni’s contributions to classical liberal thought as we celebrate his 101st birthday.

One side dismisses copyright as a plaything of political forces, imposing illegitimate restraints on freedom of expression. The opposing side regards copyrights as fundamental property rights that deserve the fullest protection of the law—like rights to houses, cars, and other forms of property. Neither view, however, captures the essence of copyright. In his new book, Intellectual Privilege, Chapman University law professor Tom W. Bell reveals copyright as a statutory privilege that threatens not just constitutional rights, but natural rights as well. He proposes a new libertarian view of copyright that reconciles the desire to create incentives for creators with our inalienable liberties. From this fresh perspective come solutions to copyright’s problems and a path toward a world less encumbered by legal restrictions and yet richer in art, music, and other expressive works.

Beyond the Individual Mandate: The Obamacare “Tax” Is Still Unconstitutional<http://cato.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=98c97f42691d5de57bc944822&id=d8005abbef&e=ecee660064>

Policy Forum
May 8, 2014 12:00PM

Featuring Timothy Sandefur, Principal Attorney, Pacific Legal Foundation; Ilya Somin, Professor of Law, George Mason University; and Simon Lazarus, Senior Counsel, Constitutional Accountability Center. Moderated by Ilya Shapiro, Senior Fellow in Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute.

President Obama recently declared that “the debate” over the Affordable Care Act “is over.” That may be wishful thinking given that the law continues to be unpopular and its implementation keeps hitting snags. Moreover, lawsuits challenging Obamacare are once again reaching the nation’s highest courts. On May 8, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit will hear arguments in Sissel v. Department of Health & Human Services, which involves the claim that the ACA’s “tax” on people without health insurance—as the Supreme Court deemed it two years ago—still violates the Constitution. The Constitution’s Origination Clause requires all tax bills to “originate” in the House of Representatives, while Obamacare came from the Senate (recall how the House voted on the Senate bill after Scott Brown won a special Senate election in Massachusetts and deprived the Democrats of their filibuster-proof majority). Please join us to hear about Sissel and its implications for limited government from the attorney who will have just argued the case, Cato adjunct scholar Timothy Sandefur.
