The U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, states that patents will be available

"Since the beginnings of our nation, the patent system has been an important component

of the free enterprise system that has generated our economic success. The government

makes a bargain with inventors - in return for fully disclosing the invention and teaching

others how it works, so that the economy and society may benefit from the advance, the

government will protect the inventor from competition for a limited time by prohibiting

others from using the new idea. The United States Patent & Trademark Office (PTO) is

the federal organization charged with reviewing inventions and granting patents to

inventors."
