While I find your comments unconvincing. If what you say were true, then there would be no Open-Source at all. There would be no Linux either, since implementing whatever Unix does by 'reverse-engineering' the functionality would be considered illegal as well.
Instead I look forward, and am not interested in personal self-gains; but more looking towards what is good for the whole of Humanity.
Please read some of these topics, then come back to discuss your views and opinions?
Except that anything is better than what this ridiculous situation is now:
Those freaking patent trolls are the lowest-of-the-low parasites of society:
This new SHIELD bill would instill some Fear Of God into these kinds of vermin.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
~ Lao Tzu
How strange that nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!
~ Emily Dickinson, 1830-1886, American Poet
Its peculiar character, too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it. He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me.
That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she made them, like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their density in any point, and like the air in which we breathe, move, and have our physical being, incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation.
Inventions then cannot, in nature, be a subject of property.
~ Thomas Jefferson
