The USA was created by people who catagorically rejected the status quo royal EU model that you're today promoting.
All ideas belong to the king. Mad 'King' Mattus.
Do you know any Brouns? Say hi to Lude. It's been 35 years...
Now where did I promote the EU model? I'm not in favor of any model.
All ideas do not belong to me, to Apple, to Samsung or whomever. Ideas are free to be shared and implemented by anyone. To put an ownership on a pattern of firing neurons in your brain is ludicrous and leads to the very excesses we are discussing here today.
I don't feel the need to protect an owner of an idea, because it leads to the excesses you see before you today! And how many life saving and life changing ideas are kept from us, because otherwise some multinational would go belly up?
Patents do more harm then good and we would be better off without them.
