    Patents and Copywrites will be the new Spanish Inquisition. We're going to be stuck at the same level of technology for hundreds of years because everyone will be afraid to do anything "creative" lest they get sued into the ground.
  3. I agree to exactly what the previous comment said here: Innovation will crash due to the fact that big corporations are bullying the smaller businesses (AND Individuals), this goes for saying across the board - governments need to stop these commercial giants from swatting down any competition. Not only do they sue these smaller companies, but they out-right buy them so they can throw their ideas away.

    What happens when there is a floating city in international waters? Who will restrict what can be bought or sold if there is no governing country? Will the countries then expand their ownership further into the oceans? (Off topic, but curious :) *nerd*

    What ever happened to the term, may the best one win?

    There is no race with patents. There is only some foolish kid with a whip, whipping all the runners to keep them from running.

    When a company buys out all the competition, this creates a monopoly effect. It is every companies goal to be as close to a complete monopoly as allowed. Patents are nothing more than someone monopolizing on an idea. For every patent there is a road block that must be detoured (Unless royalties are to be paid which often cannot be afforded) to get the the final destination.
