"Intellectual Property" Is A Matter Of Honesty.

It is probably true that the ethics of our society expects that if a person does not originate an idea ("IP") but uses it, that the user does not claim to have originated it but rather acknowledges that it came from an original source.

It is possible that there are several original sources simultaneously (take marginal utility as an example) which implies that all of the original sources be acknowledged, to the best of one's ability.

The issue may not be theft but dishonesty. If that is the case then truthfulness is what is expected in society and those who are not being sincerely truthful will ultimately be ostracized in some manner.
