Happily some forces are there that try to limit the damage
done by overbroad intellectual property.

Obviously. I don't see anyone not approve. Unless they're
fine with getting their money to the detriment of everyone
else --- which is theft from everyone else.

Oh, and I love the second part. Show that your invention works.
Clearly teach anyone who uses the patent, either now (with
licence fees) or after it's expired. That's the IDEA of a
patent over a trade secret.

The "supposed to happen" instead of "happening" clearly marks
the difference between an ideal and the reality.
