How do we handle the case below...



*Crypto people share ideas for the benefits of real decentralization,  and other people (mostly those who don't believe in true decentralization) copy the ideas, maybe make some modifications and patent them. Do you think this is ok?

I strongly believe ideas shared in Crypto communities or for crypto communities should only be used for true decentralization and not patented.
I am sure true crypto people wouldn't care who use their ideas, as long as the ideas are not used outside of making truely decentralized things and are not patented. .
 I guess every community in Crypto space should state this clearly to prevent people from patenting our ideas and getting wealthy from them?

It is okay that ideas get patents.
Otherwise, chaos is going to be created and this is going to create problems in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
In the end, if someone thinks that his idea is very good and he is afraid that it is going to get patented, then he should better not share it publicly.

No one will be okay with this kind of patenting because it will create a lot of problems with working crypto  Because in every work  we have to believe in authenticity and then act. All these ideas are good without believing in them  They do not work on the basis of authenticity  but the crypto verifies.

You can't patent an idea if it has a prior use. I remember that British Leyland ( who remembers them? ).wanted to use a folding handbrake in a car, and another manufacturer contested it, because they claimed to have a patent. BL discovered that they had used a folding handbrake in a first world war tank, so the patent failed, and they could use it in their car design. Patenting established ideas seems to be a way for organisations with strong legal departments to scam innovators.

Patents on software (code or math)... Are only a thing in about 6 countries. Do you live in one of them?

You can safely say that this practice is worldwide shunned upon. Its too bad the USA and South Korea are among them, but for example the EU and UK are against...

Therefore if you live in one of these countries, you should campaign to your politicians to put a stop to that practice. Of course we all known in systems like the American, you need money to do that (the lobby system), unfortunately those that happen to favor the patents seem to be the one able to lobby while the common folk (aka. ignorant masses) do not.
