    Should you give something to someone who threatens you for it?

    I have been receiving threats from certain people. They want me to give them money or sign over something to them or else they promise do something bad to me. They sold intellectual property rights to me many years ago and even though I paid for it in full,  they believe that it still belongs to them. What I possess is worthless to me but very worthwhile to them. I have not given it back to them because I don't respond well to threats . If they had done it nicely there is a chance that I would of given it back to them for free but since I am being threatened I have decided to keep it.

    Depends on what the perspective is! Now that you have mentioned what the issue is, the best possible outcome would be to reason it out with them and also with yourself. If- what you posses- is actually worthless to you, then why posses it in the first place? If trouble has to be avoided, at least one of the concerned party's ego needs to be lowered. And lowering ego for people who don't deserve an ounce of respect is a pretty intelligent approach to avoiding any unpleasant scenario.
    Yes! Self respect is important but living a peaceful life free of trouble is even more important. Talk it out with them. The statement what you have given here, mention the same to them. I am sure one of them will see light in it and resolve to an amicable solution!
