I was in the pub last night, and a guy asked me for a light for
his cigarette. I suddenly realized that there was a demand here
and money to be made, and so I agreed to light his cigarette for
10 pence, but I didn't actually give him a light, I sold him a
license to burn his cigarette. My fire-license restricted him from
giving the light to anybody else, after all, that fire was my
property. He was drunk, and dismissing me as a loony, but accepted
my fire (and by implication the license which governed its use)
anyway. Of course in a matter of minutes I noticed a friend of his
asking him for a light and to my outrage he gave his cigarette to
his friend and pirated my fire! I was furious, I started to make
my way over to that side of the bar but to my added horror his
friend then started to light other people's cigarettes left,
right, and center! Before long that whole side of the bar was
enjoying MY fire without paying me anything. Enraged I went from
person to person grabbing their cigarettes from their hands,
throwing them to the ground, and stamping on them.
Strangely the door staff exhibited no respect for my property
rights as they threw me out the door.
