That is just a snide ad hominem attacl. Do you have anything to back it up? Many of those voicing a critique of intellectual property rather famous for their creative endeavors (Lessig, Doctorow, Stallman, etc.). They just don't think that granting monopolies willy-nilly is a good thing because it stifles innovation and competition and leads to unjust or morally indefensible social outcomes (i.e. aids drugs sitting in warehouses while those who need them die horribly).
