Legal Since I want to get this out of my system: here's a set of proposals to fix (okay, replace) the current failing patent system. No lengthy diatribe or introduction, just a raw list.

I take issue with you on this point. As a former Patent Examiner I can tell you the purpose of a grant of a patent is to protect the intellectual property of the inventor. It is to stop others stealing/modifying original inventions so as to deprive the original inventor of his rights.

Of course, this does not mean I believe there is nothing wrong with the existing system.

Peter
