Girion47: which means he's a patent troll and part of what's hurting business from evolving.

Our patent laws are not slowing down large corporations, but they are being used to crush small companies. A large corporation can afford to buy off the patent trolls, or if it cheaper, bury them in court. The same large corporations create tons of useless patents, and then buy up even more. Then when a some one creates something truly useful and innovative, they have that invention stolen by a mega corporation. Sure, they may be lucky and be given the choice to sell out to Mega corp, but are much more likely to be sued into oblivion.
The only good that comes out of the whole screwed up system is when Mega Corp A takes on Mega Corp B. If anything is going to get things changed, it's something like Apple vs. Samsung, where a hugely complicated case, with dozens of technical patents in dispute is decided by a jury of housewives, and people too stupid to get out of jury duty.
And then you have your independent bottom feeding patent troll attorneys of course. That's another story.
