AHHHH! Do you want a world without protected intellectual property?! Try China. This sort of deal is what protects and stimulates innovation. The laws in this country state that if you come up with an idea, then that idea belongs to you, and you're free to sell it. Without this we'd all be buying iPhones made by Joe's phone shack. You people are all embarrassing yoursevles.Guest said:
It is nice that governments around the world allow this protection racket stuff to happen
Next thing you know they will allow people to patent colors and shapes.
I want dibs on rectangles.
Ok... Let's say they can't. So instead of buying things from other companies to use in products everyone has to make their own. So now Ford needs to figure out how to make car seats, airbags, radios, and tires instead of just buying them from someone who's already great at it and willing to sell it. I guess that's just greedy that a tire company would want to sell their product right to anyone but someone who's going to drive a car?Guest said:
I think its really #$!@'ed up that a company can do that, make another company pay for something so darn stupid and little, greed is going to kill us all one day.
