So it looks again as if we will have to respectfully disagree with one another, which at least provides a little spice here and there, nicht wahr? I still cannot comprehend why you so avidly attempt to remove the rights that the US government has awarded to innovative folks, and Yes *inventors*. Say it with me now Mike, "Innovators are not the same as Inventors." What point about that do you not understand? Why are inventors always bad and greedy in your opinion? Just because they want to earn a profit for about 10 years for their *invention*? Yes Mike, their are real inventions and inventors out there, whether you happen to like it or not. They will not go away, as it is a major part of American history. Why are you trying to change that so vociferously? IT influences, or perhaps a Chinese connection?
Despite all your blustering, there are very few facts and NUMBERS included in your Daisy-Chain postings. That is very unfair to inventors all over the world, and not just to those here in the US.
