I'm sure $1,000 was set just to house cost/generic baseline. Obviously, there will be lots of variables. Cost of products, labor, land, taxes. I just like house the house can be infinitely expandable, building larger pinwheels around the outside until it becomes insanely difficult to reach the center.

No, I don't believe there is any longer a single valid argument for "intellectual property" laws, of any kind. Not trademark, not copyright, and certainly not patents.

That solution is decidedly radical. Doesn't the best answer generally lie somewhere in the middle? If I find a single valid argument for intellectual property, then I have proved your solution/argument illogical.
