There's a word for taking something that someone else has earned – stealing….But, how different is it to deny someone the opportunity to earn what they otherwise might; to destroy or limit their chance to succeed? That is the plight of an entire generation of young Americans – and, it is just as wrong.

There's the rub. The Constitution provides for government-sanctioned recognition of an inventor's sole property right in his or her inventions. A patent grants an inventor a protected monopoly "for a limited time." Yet, a monopoly runs counter to a competitive market.
