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.

About the original post: I like some parts of it, but it seems overly biased towards companies, e.g. in requiring the creation of products in X time, requiring working prototypes, etc. No patent system should close out the "small guy" or individuals who don't always have the capabiity of financial background to do so, thus would be always cornered to sell ideas to corporations.

There's no question the proposals from the OP are simply unrealistic for real world application. But, to the OP's credit, he did preface with "Let me begin by saying that I, by no means, am claiming this set of proposals is perfect, watertight, coherent, legally feasible, or workable."
