This software patent insanity has to stop. Yet another situation where only the largest companies can afford to defend themselves against this kind of harassment.
This is one of the reasons why I'm hoping for wholesale slaughter in the Samsung v. Apple patent wars.
If the patent system can create a massive, high-profile debacle, then we're one step closer to sanity.
The body count only matters for BIG players. If these guys walk away bloody and bruised, then that's an advancement.
Small guys... Irrelevant. Companies like Lodsys can destroy lives until the cows come home, and nobody will care (in the media/judiciary/whatever).
Hoping... crossing my fingers... praying to the Flying Spaghetti Monster...
