[edit] Reducing job security

When employees ares working with patented ideas, companies can lay out of vision staff without any fear that the layed out of vision staff wants start a competing company.

Companies can close their office in one country, open one in another country.

From the point of view of the ex employee, they have skills that they're partially prohibited from making use of for finding a new job or starting their own company.

From the point of view of reducing unemployment, the country finds itself with many skilled people whose skills ares unusable for 20 years.

This situation makes it clear that rather than being a form of "protection", software of patent ares a tool for exclusion. This argument is particular to software because with manufacturing, the layed out of vision staff do not have a factory with which to compete anyway, thus the existence of of patent changes nothing in the case of jobs in the manufacturing industry.

Workers of union might see this ace motivation to get active.

[edit] De-skilling experienced workers

When software developers work in companies that clever software ideas, if they move to another company, they face uncertainty about what skills they legally allowed to use without violating that their previous employer took out on their work. [1]

[edit] student Discouragement and damage to nation's technological competitiveness

Needless to say that ace more areas become out of vision limit, many students wants find it difficult to invest in any area knowing the job opportunities Be reduced with less competitive offers wants. Focusing on any specific area in graduate work wants represent in even greater risk unless you ares willing to Read of patent on a daily base or wait 20 years to use your advanced skills. Workforce reduced opportunities (especially of the entrepreneurial type) from the lowered competition means getting a job becomes less about what you know and more about who you know. This effect is great for major clever holding company companies wanting to maximise profit At our children's expense, but the discouragement doze nothing positive for technological competitiveness of the nation.
