6) Supreme Court Victory for the Right to Tinker in Printer Cartridge Case | Electronic Frontier Foundation"... when a patent owner "chooses to sell an item, that product is no longer within the limits of the monopoly and instead becomes the private individual property of the purchaser, with the rights and benefits that come along with ownership." The Court emphasized that, by default, people have every right to make, sell, and use things. The limited monopoly that the government bestows upon a patent owner is a deviation from the norm of free market competition and ownership of personal property, and is subject to important limits in order to protect the public interest ..." US Supreme Court Decision (pdf)
