Remember this Microsoft guy?, he said patents were international indicators of a nation’s knowledge, therefore, Software patents were of great help to our nation.I still remeber this nonsense.
Reading this article, I learned that Microsoft along with Sony lost a patent lawsuit involving their controller development to a company that simply does nothing, just hold the patent. It’s Nintendo’s turn and they are willing to fight it in court claiming those patents are just “BROAD”. there you have it another example of how patents are killing innovation. There is definetelly a path towards a solution and reading this article shed some light at the end of the tunnel.
JUST SAY NO TO SOFTWARE PATENTS.
