Imagine you or the lustysociety had created wealth after work and costs.
How much of that wealth should be taken away and allocated by some other organization?
Work and investments must be paid.
Researchers must be paid for their work and not their discoveries.
Knowledge must be shared.
The lustysociety supports the protection of goods and services and investments by secrecy and exclusive use.
E.g. by copy protections and software as a service.
The lustysociety opposes patents because patents are harmful and not profitable for the society:
IMO the knowledge of a patent is discovered quickly in an industry and not after 10 or 20 years.
IMO patents lead to reduced research because many companies are not willing to invest in research and lose everything by patents.
- Patents are shared and used by established companies to harm other companies.
- No person must be prevented from using its own ideas.
- No person must invest time and effort and other wealth in order to research and understand patents.
- The cost and harm of the judiciary must be minimized.
All knowledge must be shared for free for the benefit of all.
Sharing knowledge is an exponential increase of health and wealth of everyone.
Sharing knowledge is almost free and not a zero-sum game.
