I'm against patents. They are supposed to foster innovation but instead stifle it as the government profits at every turn with patent fees and court costs.
Then of course, you must trust that the "experts" at the patent office know enough about every invention to hand out patents with justice. I'm sure patent officers have really impressive degrees and that their own self interest is the interest of the public.
