    Most patents come from people working for a company that simply takes ownership of the patent without giving the inventor any compensation.

    This is why I'd always told ppl, not to give their best ideas to their parent companies. Just do the work which is expected, and keep your ideas to yourself.

    Looking at recent Russian history and Putin's hero Stalin, the assassination should raise alarms.

    Following the example of Stalin, Putin can now 'round up the usual suspects' (his opponents and any possible rivals), and force them to "confess" in show trials. Already Putin's regime arrests the families of targets in order to force cooperation, and that pattern seems likely to continue. Once a target has "confessed," he cannot save himself, but if he submits to punishment (e.g. execution) then his family may be spared.

    Stalin's purges continued for years, and included murders around the world (e.g. Trotsky in Mexico City).

    Some Russians, including Putin, revere Stalin to this day.

    The more things change, the more they remain the same.

    Why are ppl wasting money on this crap? Seriously, this is looking like those artificial islands in Dubai, a lot of nouveau riche money, being flushed on worthless crap.

    When you're making money ... you save and invest it. Sure, if the firm needs added space, build an actual wing. If you want a theme park for an office, partner with Disney, so that in the end, Disney will take half the fall, if your company plunges into the red, over time. But this is retarded.
