TAL episode on patent trollshttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
I am going on the record as saying there should be an "Intellectual Ventures" style open source equivalent. I don't know where funding would come from to pay for the patents....but people should start contributing these frivolous patents into a common pool so that the software community can't be strongarmed by the likes of these big patent trolls who own the rights to similar frivolous patents.
ps I feel there is an analogous sad story about how song copyrights are being enforced AND stifling creativity. Also at cross-purposes with its original intent.
