Copyrights and Patents

I affirm the right of Congress to establish copyright and patent laws, but only when they meet the Constitution requirements. They should only apply to scientific discoveries and useful arts, not aesthetics or entertainment. They should apply only to explicit methods, devices, or findings, not abstract ideas.  And the original inventor, not the first to file the invention with the U.S. Patent Office, should be given all the rights to the invention.

Such laws should be vigorously enforced, and this power should not be transferred to any other body of government, foreign or domestic. Likewise, the U.S. should prosecute or extradite those who violate reasonable foreign copyright and patent laws.
