Internet TV patent : Comment 44 of 62ANN.lu
Posted by 3seas on 18-Jul-2004 11:09 GMT
Patents are a result of selected economic systems.

In such economic systems patents can provide incentive to invent.

Inventions are ment to benefit mankind, the human race.

Patents have had their ups and downs in the history of their use.
Even whole patent systems have been removed from use.

Like anything man made, what is created with good intentions can be abused and counter the main objective or goal of patents, to benefit mankind, the human race.

Even more fundamental is the matter of economic systems, by which any patent system may or not make since.

before anyone jumps in and claims this or that economic system is the best or only way to go, the fact has to be realized that all economic systems to date have been based upon economic theory(ies) which in attempt to put into practical application, all of these economic theories have failed to follow their theories and as such in actuality are approximations or biases towards their theories.

However, most all these theories had as their goal a benovelent intent towards the whole of mankind, the human race.

Here is the real deal:

As our technology advances to the point of enabling us to provide all humans with the basics of survival and work is globally reduced in what is required to maintain these basics, then it becomes more a matter of sharing the maintainance work where beyond that is luxury and what would you like to do with your increased free time? Would you not like to contribute some work of your interest to the improvement of the general quality of life for yourself as well as the environment you live in (big picture -- the world/earth... and beyond).

The point is, the patent system is intended to help inspire overall improvement in the quality of human life. When it fails to do this, it will be abolished.

When this happens, and it will (humans just can't avoid the temptation of abusing good intents), it won't be the first time a patent system has been abolished.

Already there are many signs of such wrongful abuse going on and growing.... The sooner it gets top heavy in abuse the sooner it will all fall.
