I always think that the idea of Intellectual Property was not very well brought across to the general public, I mean, how do claim that ideas was yours? like what you have is unique and cannot be copy.
Maybe the Chinese people can start sueing the European for copyrights issue regarding who invented the bomb? and the native Indian can claim their "copyrights" to America lands, so on and so forth.....
Intellectual Property are not easily define, not you say so means it is so..
