The way people claim to own ideas, and how they claim they are the first to think of things is just plain silly.
The only person who benefits from people following those ways is the creator who is making money off it.
The community would benefit from people improving existing ideas, that's how technology moves forward. Not by saying "Hey, Im the first to sell this, so I must be the first to have thought it, and own this idea, don't do anything similiar"
I'm not against him personally, it is the attitude that people can just claim ownership of an idea without going through any of the proper channels to actually get patents.
