13. If the framers were alive today, they would ABOLISH the patent system which has been ABUSED beyond..


....recognition.

When they authorized Congress to grant limited patents in Article I, Section 8:

"The Congress shall have power...To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries."


the framers had no idea Sonny Bono and corporatists would abuse this clause to the extent that science, useful arts, and the general welfare would be IMPEDED by patent law, rather than promoted.

We would be far better off, and the marketplace would be more just, if would immmediately and totally ABOLISH this abused patent system.
