    What if someone patented the weel and not allow anyone else to use it ?
    I think diferent people can find the same solution if they have similar environment variables
    So where is the limit to copyright or patent something ?

    No you can't patent everything , there are some limits , like how harley davidson tried to patent there unique sound but were not given permission.
