The Myth that Patents are a Monopoly

A patent gives the holder the right to exclude others from making, using or selling the invention.  35 USC 154.  It does not give the holder the right to make, use or sell their invention.  A monopoly is an exclusive right to a market, such as an electric utility company.  An electric utility company has the exclusive right to sell electricity in a certain territory.  Since a patent does not even give the holder the right to sell their invention, let alone an exclusive right to a market, it is clearly not a monopoly.
