Patents hinder the growth and innovation within society.
Have you ever had an idea, only to find that someone else has already patented it but is doing nothing with it. It seem that every idea I have, falls into this category.
I feel that society is missing out on the benefits of innovation because the world is choked by restrictive patents.
I look at China and its"reputation" for disregarding foreign patents. It is moving ahead in leaps and bounds because it chooses to not be bound by such restrictions.
I do see value in patents, but on the other hand I see they have a big negative too.
I feel that world wide patent law needs an overhaul.
What do you think?
