Consider if all the inventions in mathematics would have been owned by the inventor and released to the use of the others only by a sale of patent rights.  Although the laws of ownership began to develop about 2200 B.C., “lawyers” of that time were focusing their thoughts to ownership of concrete things or livestock, or matters between people.  Had their interest been in protecting the ownership of mathematical innovations, maybe no flying today not to speak about computers...

The right for ownership was the first time defined in Hammurabi’s Code of Laws, to be accurate in §9 thereof. Hammurabi, a king of Babylonia, living between 1800 and 1750 B.C., issued his code to enable the growth of wealth of people in his empire.  It still took more than 3200 years since the Code of Hammurabi, before the first patent was granted.
