Or if the world had never allowed software patents in the first place, they wouldn't being paying out right now and the court systems time would not be continuously wasted like it is. Having an idea and creating something amazing from it is great but to thing that you're the only one who should be able to reap the benefits of that idea is arrogant and selfish. I'm sorry, but I have to side with Thom on this guys.
