Intellectual Property & Hitler's House

Samizdata picks up on a very interesting issue. Their argument is fiscal. Mine is moral.

What if you had some copyrighted material that was patently offensive to contemporary sensibilities archived away someplace? Should you use intellectual property rights to suppress its publication under all circumstances? Should IP used to bury historical records?

I say no, of course. Are we going to have to require Truth & Reconciliation laws to do battle?
