google admits the more patents and copyright you have the more restrictive business and innovation got. you couldn't create products, or innovate yourself.
here's the truth. the further you kill copyright/patents, the easier it gets to innovate, and do business yourself. rather than be reliant on copyright/patents to be a monopoly on content, you must invest your money continuously and fast, in order to have the best products and technology on the market, otherwise someone will outdo you and put your business out of business. currently patents/copyright prevent investment and innovation, because companies are safe that no competitor can rise even if they can do the same thing as you, and this creates a monopoly for those who own the patents and copyrights.
when a patent is in effect, companies like to delay technology deployment so as to milk that particular patented technology, while competitors are barred from entry to the market. then they move onto the next slight improvement of said patented technology, while a treasure trove of tech is held back because it's the next slight revision of tech they'll deploy next. that's basically business today.
sad but true.
