    are made using the efforts of countless other developments, made by countless other individuals through history.
    All of whom were compensated for their individual contributions when they made them.
    Why should a step forward belong to a few private individuals?
    Because they took the step, and other people didn't.

    Besides, everyone benefits from better technology in the form of lower prices and improvements.

      I'm guessing you like 'work for hire' laws, where anything you do at all belongs to your employer because you're employed by them.  After all, they're being compensated by their regular paychecks - no need to even discuss how much more you'll make off of them by appropriating their so-called private efforts, right?  I mean, they got paid, so we're all square!

      Right?
