Re: We need to change patent law

I wonder why they don't just make patents nontransferrable. So they can ONLY stay with their inventors (they can still be licensed, as that's only a temporary permit) and become immediately void and public domain upon death/dissolution. That would instantly make patents worthless as assets and severely curtail patent trolling since they would have to actually invent in order to obtain a patent.
