"Yes the freedom to profit from one's own ingenuity. "

Having an idea and patenting it is hugely different from profiting from that idea. It is the corporate entity or established business that is most often able to profit from patents. Therefore, these things are bought and sold just like any other "intellectual property."

Being the first to patent an idea is hugely different from being the first person to have the idea. First come, first serve.
