Why shouldn't patents transfer? If a company is bought out, the buyer owns everything of that company. How are patents not part of that purchased company? What would happen to those patents if they don't transfer? Disappear? Become usable by everyone in that it is no longer a patent?

General design patents i.e. how things generally look are lame. I agree on that.
