Google For the first time, Google has opened its mouth against the patent trolling by Apple (and by proxy, Microsoft) against Android manufacturers. By way of Eric Schmidt, Google's chairman, the company took stand against the legal actions, and stated they aren't too worried. If need be, Google will ensure HTC doesn't lose the patent case against Apple.

RE[7]: How can this be fixed?

I am someone who reads about all these patent lawsuits and recognizes a problem. But most of the responses I see are just to abolish software patents. I am an educated person that feels that that answer is just to simple, and to me seems lazy.

And you think it's lazy because you don't know what you're talking about. You're talking out your bum to people who actually walk the walk and telling us how our business should be conducted. This is not mature. It in no way helps solve the problem. All it does is muddy the waters and make it even more difficult to actually fix the problem. Copyright protection is all that is needed for software. A free market and innovative and well run companies will continue to innovate, make tonnes of cash and contribute a generally healthy economy without any software patents.

Asserting anything other that that without having any sort of experience and giving ridiculous examples on why we need patents is immature. You sir are less mature than anyone who has responded to you. You are a part of the problem. So, until you have something valuable to contribute why don't you shut your mouth and try and read a lot more to understand the problem. Then maybe we can have a mature discussion.
