I am very happy to live in Europe where patentlaws have steered away the disaster they have become in the US. Watching patenting in the US becoming it's own industry where a company patent everything they do and can get a patent on, then turn around and sell the to the highest bidder is plain sickening.
Thinkl of it this way. If companies in US is successfull denying other companies to produce things on the background on a somewhat generic patent, other US copanies are denyed their living rights and will die.
Having Apple, a large company standing in front of thiss mess, just points out the magnitude of this disease.....
