I'm feeling myself disgusted at the current state of the patent system in 'Merica, it's crucially flawed and outdated. Not only is it a terrible thing for mankind but, inhibits the development of man-kind. Everyone should have the information at the fingertips; knowledge is power. If it's new tech everyone should be able to band onto this and make the invention better - isn't that how capitalism should work?
The world should run like an open-source project, everyone contributing to subjects or niches they're interested in, it's proven to work, just look at the Internet; a clear example.
Companies that go out off there way to benefit other people and help them learn new skills such as Ray Tracing should be commended.
Just my thoughts 'round here. What does everyone else think of this? Agree?
