Yes, he most definitely would have sided against monopoly power. He believed that freedom from monopolies and similar economic constructs was a right of man.


Monopolies ?

There is no exclusive control of market or exclusive right enforced by Government .

Thomas Jefferson was actually against intellectual property rights, but he did see short term utility of patents and copyrights for limited times. In fact, he believed that it would be better to have no copyrights or patents than to extend their duration to more than half the lifetime of the average citizen.

You have no idea what he would stand for in this.


I have a very good idea of where he would stand on this issues, as he wrote about the issue during the development of the United States Constitution. He was adamant in his view, and he did not waiver in his belief.

You take quotes and post them but they are not his words on this matter.


His quotes are, literally, his words on the matter. There is no ambiguity in his position regarding monopolies.

I do wonder where he would have stood on this considering your biggest issue seems to be that you want third parties to develop games for systems with the smaller market share solely for your interest.


You are beating this straw man to death. Considering that the relatively small amount of available software for other platforms is considered legal evidence of market barrier caused by having a de facto monopoly, I wonder why you keep trying to use this argument, as it is evidence for the validity my premise rather than yours.

Unless you have a quote where he mentions Microsoft you have no idea where he stands on this issue.

But you have yet to prove that he would consider Microsoft a monopoly. In his day Monopolies were granted by governments.

It is a nice ploy though.

"MY GAMES! MY GAMES! I WILL ENSLAVE YOU SO I CAN PLAY MY GAMES ON THE SYSTEM I WANT!"

Pathetic.
