You don't say?

Kevin Drum realizes that patents aren't exactly a spur to invention.

Interesting.

The link behaves oddly, though. When clicked it delivers one to the correct page, but if you reach that address via back/forward button navigation instead of clicks, you get a nearly blank page instead.

Interesting though that some MSM types are starting to sense that patents maybe not all they're cracked up to be.

In the meantime, it remains my firmly-held belief that there is a right of the people to keep and arm bears.

So Kevin Drum wants America's only native criminal class--Congress--to reform the patent system. And I'll bet he thinks they'll abolish rent seeking even before King Canute returns to roll back the incoming tide. As for Intellectual Ventures small R and utter lack of D, they don't do any C either, which would be commercialization (beyond D). Re: the abolition of rent seeking, as Holman Jenkins Jr. of the Wall Street Journal would say, uh huh.
