Human ingenious creations are the basic bricks of the edifice of our civilization and correspondingly Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) became one integral part of modern civilization. Starting with the very basic nature of Intellectual Property (IP) in comparison to the nature of physical entities like cars, this writing explores the logic behind IPR related fairness by making use of Platonic style dialectic dialogue. Some key factors that would impact the fairness of IPR in a society are discussed. This writing re-exhibits the power of the ancient technique of dialectic dialogue for explicating complicated social issues like IPR. Reference to some previous discussion on fairness in general by the author, together with some other relevant ancient philosophical thinking, is also provided in this writing
