Legal I've been sitting on this item all day. Technically, it's about patents and the like, and even I understand I've been beating this dead horse so often it almost looks like it's alive. However, this is an interesting opinion piece by Craig Hockenberry, long-time employee at The Iconfactory, one of my favourite software development houses - these guys breath software and beautiful design, and employ one of my favourite artists, David Lanham. The gist of his story? Software patents are killing the independent developer scene.

Ok, so again... where are the examples of these 'little guys' getting picked on by these large companies?

NDA! My dear Watson. You will never hear of it.

The guy says that large companies have no interest in changing the system, but perhaps they will call a truce when they finally get tired of being sued by each other.

You are naive, if you think they are spending their own money on the lawsuits. They will not get tired, ever.
