Intertrust Sues Apple Over DRM Related Patent Infringements


  • VirtualVisitor

    Software patents badly awarded by an under-funded and repeatedly badgered USPTO, will haunt us for a long time.

    90% of the software patents I have seen should be invalidated due to Prior Art, but not known to younger USPTO examiners. I started programming in 1969, and the quality of software patents on the books today is mostly laughable. And dangerous.

    Keep in mind, a weak USPTO benefits large corporations with hordes of lawyers on retainer. It does not benefit society, and clogs the courts and vastly increases the cost of goods on the market.
