Question(s) / Instruction(s):

1-Why are patents protected for a limited period of time? Does this argue in favor of not patenting an item?

2-Under the mailbox rule there is a period of time when the offeror may be in a contract and not be aware of it. If the rule were changed such that acceptances were effective upon receipt, would this eliminate the problem of someone being in a contract without being aware of it? Is there any rule or set of rules that will eliminate the problem of one party or the other having a period of uncertainty, if all correspondence is conducted through the mail? If either the offeree or offeror must go through a period of uncertainty, which should it be? Why? What can the offeror do to avoid this uncertainty? Is the mailbox becoming more important or less important?
