‘full possession’

A recent comment on the property rights of inventions…

“Once that individual conceives the invention, they are in full possession of that property right”

We are in full agreement. A patent only acknowledges that natural right. It doesn’t create it. It’s just part of the process of quantifying and enforcing.

Madison in the federalist is very clear that all ‘faculties of the mind’ are property and its protection is THE principal aim of government.
