guestx: Because it's been corrupted shows that the fundamental idea is bad? What nonsense! At the end of the day I can't see how it can be anything other than fair for the originator of a good idea to be the one who gets the reward for it, and I'm amazed that anyone questions that, other than unimaginative freeloaders who want to make a living off the back of other peoples' work.

As I was saying before, I admit the system can, and has, gone wrong before. That happens in all areas of the legal system, but should we therefore get rid of laws because sometimes they can be abused or exploited? The whole system just needs better safeguards and checks (Brazil has some into the news recently with what I think is a pretty sensible safeguard).
