And the rub is this:

People invent things.

Corporations do not invent things.

Corporations are immortal. People are not.

All this does is make certain that the majority of our past innovations will be horded by corporate entities which can, and likely will, use them as leverage in the future... not against each other.... but against any individual who invents something to which they can even remotely lay claim.

What this will engender is that the general population of curious and driven minds will have to 'reinvent' things they probably didn't need to, because it already existed and was subsequently sequestered by a corporate entity along with 10,000 other patents 'sold' in a bundle as an investment.

It is a shame really. This law seems to be passed for profit, and not for the interest of humanity as a whole. I sometimes hope things are changing and people will be put first in this world. Inventions are supposed to be protected for only short periods of time. Humanity will kill itself by stopping the free spread of ideas and inventions. If someone invented a "Replicator" like is found in star trek movies shouldn't it be the right of humanity to have access to it? I certainly think the inventor should be rewarded and never have to work another day in their life, and never want for nothing. But to lock down the market and prohibit others from producing the replicator is an counter to how we should behave as a species.
