United States After reading of all lawsuits based on flimsy patents I am really scared to even try to develop a business. This madness has to end. In addition to a lot of the other suggestions , I think limiting the life of a patent to 7yrs would help. 1 year 5 months ago

United States Patents are justified with circular logic of protectionism supposedly encouraging innovationcircular logic of protectionism supposedly encouraging innovation. Besides being a clear lien on inalienable freedoms of association (commerce) and speech (especially in producing/expressing oneself in the economy, to be self-sufficient), the argument fails thusly. If one competitor can innovate their own production process, or design, by mimicking another's design or discovery, then this does not limit innovation - it is the pure expression and consequence of it, and it multiplies that particular innovation exponentially throughout human industry and the marketplace. It also spurs further innovation by increasing competition. Necessity is the mother of invention - not State privilege brokered by bureaucrats-for-hire to special interests. Why is imagining some technical feature a more important *innovation* than a hard-working team or person *innovating* their standard operating procedures or overhauling their manufacturing process to remain competitive? Is allowing some individual or combine to corner a market through State force (patent law) somehow justifiable? How's that been working out for us so far? 1 year 7 months ago

United States Software patents are outdated, at best. Law is too long, If the litigates lose they pay fees, software patenets must demonstrate the software is viable running and fully functional before a pattent is considered, Infringement should not be liable is there wan an independant arrival at the same solution, patents and lic, should be public and kept up to date, litigates winning should be limited to actual damage adn not to theoretical losses and only to the extent as the violation was part and parcel to the violation, con gresional commisioned study to specifically determine if software patents are economicly viable and condusive to growth. 1 year 8 months ago
