How can the Patent Office distinguish between 'a created idea' that should be patentable and a fairly obvious 'practicality' that should not be patentable?
If Fred invents an algorithm to say compress video 100 times more than existing systems - thats a very cliever 'created' idea and Fred should be allowed to licence the idea (it might have been his lifes work)
