    That's actually one of the topics that Everything is a Remix took on. They make a pretty strong case that in many industries--say Tech for example--patents/trademarks/etc are innovation killers and actually a giant drag on the economy. You end up with a bunch of mega-corp incumbents building giant patent castles with a moat of lawyers around it trying to stave off any disruption/competition. Instead of coming up with the next great thing, resources are being wasted fighting over inane BS like "who owns the shape of this metal screen?"
