We did not get to where we are here now, by not copying and improving on other’s ideas .I guess if the Portuguese patented ship designs our north american asses would be still back in Europe. The Americas would be null. If we continue down this path we won’t see any inovation for decades ala Bush / Mccain Stupidity War Lovers… Although no a single person from any bank has ever been arrested for war crimes even though wars can not WORK without money and banks!!!
If you invent a product you should get the credit for it… However you shouldn’t allow your invention to be the only one for a thousand years… Aristotle anyone??
Live in Canada but America wake up !!! Elect Obama so your ass won’t go out on yet another War!!! and yet another massive debt to China… Christ I think Chine owns USA now… Scary!!
