First of all, there are so many overlapping idea patents that it almost certainly has contemporaries. The adaptation of the patent system to cover "processes" has lead us to a quagmire that a corrupt government (such as ours) is paralyzed to strike down. The only way we will see an end to the idea of idea ownership is when it hurts the big dogs. Then.... things will change. I see it starting to crumble now, let's hope this oppressive, startup crushing culture of "more IP better" comes to an abrupt halt soon.
