ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of artist and experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats who copyrighted his mind with the U.S. Copyright Office. It states that Keats may decide what happens to his mind long after his physical expiration under the U.S. law which offers artists copyright protection. It notes that in an initial public offering, Keats sold futures contracts on these rights of 10 U.S. dollars per million neurons and will be transferred to the Jonathon Keats Holding Company.
