This is awful. Our culture seems to be bent on eliminating the open market for creators. I guess one way to deal with this situation is to simply stop thinking and imagining. Why create or build something when you know someone (via government-granted monopoly) is going to tell you it already exists, and now you owe them money!?
 
look on the bright side: any society going this route is closing off future development; others can step in...
