    What I create is mine and I should be able to do anything I want with it, including not letting others exploit MY ideas. How can you support free markets and not support patenting? It’s absurd. Patents protect freedom.

    Only goods can be property. Ideas are not goods. If neuroscience has taught us anything, it’s that ideas are real parts of people’s brains. You can’t direct in the creation of a part of a person’s brain and then claim to own it. That’s like a surgeon recreating a person’s face and then demanding payment for the use of that face.

    I agree with Mike. Patent laws are antithetical to free markets…they are government intervention to stop one company from competing with another.
