Juan Donado Posted 7 months ago What do you think of a world without patents? A World without patents would be a World with few, or even no innovation at all. If scientists, corporations, governments etc. were not encouraged by the usually huge profit opportunities from R&I then probably, they would not spend so much effort trying to come up with something new. That's obvious. But also I think it'd bring a wrong message to society as a whole: invent something and then see how others profit from YOUR idea. We're imperfect and greedy humans after all.
