I would have to agree, buy raising the application costs, you would start to phase out the garage inventors that our country's technological advances have come from over our country's short history. I'm pretty sure Wilbur and Orville wouldn't have been able to afford tremendous patent application fees, and so some corporation would have stolen their idea and patented it for themselves, reaping all the benefits. Although the patent office wasn't around then, it just shows what type of negative impace that type of change could have.
