Patent Trolling : Corporate Style(4 posts)
This news makes me very sad, how these negative interaction around what? around $ and for what? just domination, that is it, there is no I can't survive without or this is needed to propel my company. Just plain ol'egomaniac domination.
Haaa google you did not want me to buy you out, you gonna suffer the wrath or my band haaaaaaaa >:(
Makes me wonder if Windows 7 or 8 now are just 2 times, 3 times, perhaps 4 times worth less $ at purchase than advertised. At least it has the merit to reinforce my attitude and position toward win 8 saying I truly do not need it.
Yeah, patent speculation is really becoming one of the most important emergent stories in my opinion. It should be covered far more extensively than it is right now.
Instead of being used to protect innovators, it's being used to sabotage innovation as a whole in this ridiculous trench war between the titans.
I think it's simple, abolish any kind of patent lasting more than 5 years. Make them non-renewable, and just release them after 5 years. If you invent something, great, milk it for half a decade without worrying about competition, and then let's move the fuck on.
The way it is right now is just a tragic mess that hurts science, business and in particular smaller businesses who don't have the privilege of a massive legal department or an expansive, irrational portfolio of patents.
