You mean, if someone invents something and someone else grabs the idea and
uses it with slight changes, just enough to avoid a patent suit, and makes
millions out of it by leveraging its monopoly position, it's ok, right ?

If M$ had invented the idea they could have monopolized it until forever
and nobody would have minded. But they did not. Notice that no-one is
suing them over the Word .doc format or .xls or anything like that. Wonder
why ?  Because it's theirs.
