They're more likely to get it done than half the people begging for money on kickstarter.

Or they'll go bankrupt trying to imitate one of the many physically impossible "projects".

Let's make all the roads out of glass! It's the future!

So what? Ideas are not protected in the way that inventions are. Moreover, given the quality of Chinese engineering and manufacturing, they'll fail anyway. After all, it's better to learn from others' mistakes, since we don't have time to make them all ourselves. Sounds like a win for us.

Yeah because how dare a lowly peasant be permitted to profit from their own idea!

I'm sure you are getting down-voated because this isn't one of those "overreaching copyright laws" situations. This isn't Nintendo having the next Mario stolen from them. This is your neighbor who had an idea. Hell it could even be you!

Just having an idea doesn't mean shit. Anyone could come up with an idea: like why don't you have a social network designed for dogs, for example. It's meaningless. You can't steal an idea because it simply isn't something that exists outside of your imagination. At least if you write a book or come up with a better mouse trap then that is a thing that exists. That is the law isn't designed to protect your idea or concept of a thing but rather an actual thing that exists in the real world. If the former was the actual case then you would be able to sue someone claiming you had a dream about a certain product that existed, which is absurd since there's no possible way they would have been able to know that, to give an example.

And don't even get me started on copyright or patent law: if you think that those exist to protect the rights of individuals rather than corporations at this stage then you're truly living in la la land.

Good. Get a fucking patent. Too many kickstarters are incompetent and never bring their product to market. Now someone can kickstart a company that can be contracted by incompetent kickstarters to bring their funded project to market faster and beat the Chinese. Work it harder, Make it better, Do it faster, Makes us stronger.
