Quotes

...than the men," Mark Stoneking, a biological anthropologist at Germany's Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, told Live Science . "This often happens in human societies, because not all men are able to afford wives, or sometimes a few men will have many wives."
For much of human history, a greater proportion of women in the population reproduced relative to men, they found. This means "that even though there may be equal numbers of males and females in a population, a larger proportion of the females than the males are reproducing" Stoneking said
The study provides a new perspective at a time when population aging is spreading to many countries around the world. "The extent of population aging that is going on and expected is beyond what has ever been observed before. Since there is no precedent to this development, there is also no blueprint how to deal with it" Loichinger says
"Bear in mind that the patent laws already exist to prevent certain types of information being used by a non-owner without the owner's consent: that is, ideas and inventions which have sufficient characteristics of novelty and non-obviousness can be subject to patent protection and then, if a competitor seeks to replicate that particular idea or invention by reverse engineering or any other means, the patent or a valid patent is sufficient to prevent that happening."
