Don't be fooled, IP harms the little guys most.

Big businesses have the biggest patent portfolios and the legions of lawyers to defend them. Megacorps love IP because it helps them become more entrenched and keep out the upstarts.

Patents started as a way for Kings to grant monopolies to their cronies. It's a fundamental feature of crony-capitalism. They have no place in a free market.
