I fucking love the hypocrisy about even the smallest is considered a monopoly and can be fined.

But its totally the opposite when it comes to patents, i swear you can have the stupidest patents on dumbest things. Also that fact it seems like you can get a patent on just a way to implement that idea or techonology even you you had nothing to with inventing it.

I know in some cases and fields patents would be needed. But hell no in techonology, its even more ridiculous to thinking about you can have pantent on standards.

Remember being anti-competive (in diffrent ways though) is good so long you pay for it.

    Almost all of actually important research is done in publicly funded institutions. There's a reason why Bell labs was churning out real inventions when it was semi-public organization ran by researchers whose only goal was just research and not financial gains.

    And now imagine having patents not only last twenty years since application but til seventy years after the death of the inventor - and you got copyright.
