And when it comes to loyalty to their new "allies" after the switch, how would you call shooting at English and American planes trying to help the Warsaw Uprising if they tried to go over Soviet-held territory, not even speaking about refueling there?

Russkies were a third side in the war, their relation to the free world was at most an uneasy truce because of a common enemy.

And what about Russian or Chinese hordes of biased editors paid by their governments? They plague not only comment section of pretty much any mainstream news website, but also Wikipedia as well. Try for example the WWII article -- it's so full of paeans of praise for the Soviet Union that someone who doesn't know better would take them for heroes who almost single-handedly liberated the world.

Uhm no, the patent system works as designed since day one. The purpose of patents was to extract some money for the rulers (the king at first). When money went to someone else, elected parliaments try to fight that, like in 1624, but whenever they receive some of the money they propagate the problem. It was never about "innovation".
