It’s hard to say why exactly it’s taking so long for everyone to ‘go solar’ or switch to an electric car, but there is no doubt about it, patents are a big player. Businesses that fear competition and greedy individuals don’t want the world to know wireless electricity and global wifi are scrawny goals compared to what’s really possible when you open source all inventions.
We obviously cannot trust the Supreme Court or Congress to make any progress quickly on this matter even though it is literally holding humanity back, but we THE PEOPLE can remove all the jargon from bills that protect patents. Rather than trying to control patent trolls or create federal courts and third party systems that justify who gets to patent what and when, we should overnight pass a bill that abolishes patents; in turn ending the ban of innovation!
From drills in geothermal power plants to microchips in computers, patents are controlling every aspect of human ingenuity. From seeds that grow food to pharmaceuticals, copyrights are the life source of starvation and epidemics. The idea of abolishing patents is becoming ever more popular. This has been mentioned by Elon Musk, for example, CEO of TESLA motors and SpaceX when he wrote on his blog, “Technology leadership is not defined by patents, which history has repeatedly shown to be small protection indeed against a determined competitor, but rather by the ability of a company to attract and motivate the world’s most talented engineers.”Jacque Fresco futurist, inventor and creator of The Venus Project has stated, “Creativity is taking known elements and putting them together in different ways.” Ideas, unlike property, cannot be picked up, removed, stolen and then owned by only one person at a time. Patents are invalid. No one can ever really own any idea, or claim ownership over any future technology.
Society will never be able to truly calculate how many people have been discouraged or run bankrupt due to patents, but we can end the games of registered trademarks! When we do, we will finally allow humans to give back to society, which has handed down it’s ethics, mathematics, language, etc. to all of us. When we stop this scheme that stifles new invention, we can begin to free the victims of patents and allow their funds to be recirculated into improving the public’s health.
