One point you haven't covered here that I think is important is that Intellectual Property actually protects individual laborers from exploitation in that it stops their work being taken without the author getting any reciprocal benefit or payment.

This applies to artists, writers, actors and software engineers alike

Edit: I should expand on what I mean by "taken", I mean a large company just stealing their work, which actually does happen quite often anyways.
