Supreme Court on Jefferson's Views on Patents

by Stephan Kinsella on September 13, 2011

From the Supreme Court case Graham v. John Deere Co. (1966):

[Jefferson believed] [t]he patent monopoly was not designed to secure to the inventor his natural right in his discoveries. Rather, it was a reward, an inducement, to bring forth new knowledge. The grant of an exclusive right to an invention was the creation of society—at odds with the inherent free nature of disclosed ideas—and was not to be freely given.

While Jefferson's earlier views favored patents ("the benefit even of limited monopolies is too doubtful to be opposed to that of their general suppression"),

His views ripened, however, and in another letter to Madison (Aug. 1789) after the drafting of the Bill of Rights, Jefferson stated that he would have been pleased by an express provision in this form:

"Art. 9. Monopolies may be allowed to persons for their own productions in literature & their own inventions in the arts, for a term not exceeding – years but for no longer term & no other purpose." Id., at 113.

Too bad this language did not make it into the Constitution. This would have capped the copyright term to some finite number, so that Disney could not have it extended all the way to over 100 years now.

Reed Jessen joins the conversation...

Founder of The Cryptocurrency Defense Foundation
Webpage: CryptoDefense.Org

My team and I are also working on a non-profit project to benefit the Bitcoin community.  The Cryptocurrency Defense Foundation (CryptoDefense.org) is a newly formed 501(c)(6) non-profit defensive patent aggregator with the mission of limiting the harmful effects of the patent system on the nascent cryptoeconomy.  We pool together cryptocurrency related patents and license them openly to everyone who agrees to not use their own patents to sue other community members.  Play nice, everyone wins.  Be a jerk and we will make life difficult for you.

A very good explanation of Bitcoin and how it works can be found at https://multibit.org/faq.html. The beginning of the FAQ at the above address reads: Hi! I'm new to this Bitcoin thing. I'm not technical and I have a lot of questions...

Ask away. Bear in mind that there is a lot to learn, and I cannot give you financial advice. What is Bitcoin ?

Put very simply it is a new form of money that works extremely well on the Internet. So it's a "virtual currency" ?

No. Virtual currencies are generally tokens issued by a company for near-exclusive use on their site. Examples include loyalty or gift cards, air miles or mobile phone top-ups.

Bitcoin is a general purpose digital currency. It is programmable money.

Nothing like Bitcoin has ever existed before.

In a similar way that email revolutionised the postal service, Bitcoin can revolutionise financial services.
