> Patents, like many other goods, are traded. And those movements are not subject to any kind of law, limit or regulation. Prices change freely responding to supply and demand. That's the definition of "unregulated market",
No it is not. Being able to buy and sell and change prices based on demand is just the definition of 'market'. It does not indicate whether or not there is regulation present. You seem to be ignoring the definition of your adjective (at least in the context), or are using it in a bizarre manner.
> and the fact that they are government-granted is irrelevant.
No... the fact that they are 'government-granted' means that it's regulated. It is _extremely_ relevant.
Saying that government granted monopolies on the ability to distribute and use software in a marketplace is not regulation on software marketplaces because you have the ability buy and sell these monopoly rights just doesn't make a lot of sense.
I am very sorry, but the level of absurdity here makes it difficult to even refute. One has a hard time even figuring out were to start!
