Legal I guess this is what some people would call "karma". Apple may shout off the rooftops that it invented multitouch, and that anyone else using it is clearly stealing it from them - but another company has taken offence to that, and has slapped the Cupertino giant with a patent infringement suit over multitouch.

The only way of getting rid of patents, is having more lawsuits.


I suspect you underestimate the ability of one group of lawyers (those who profit by filing suits--not winning them, mind, but filing them) to influence another group of lawyers (those who legislate).
