Legal "The man who co-founded Apple - the world's most valuable company - in the garage of Steve Jobs' parents, fears the torrent of intellectual property lawsuits being filed by companies such as Apple, Samsung, Google, HTC and Nokia could prevent future entrepreneurs from treading a path to technology fortune." Well, mr Wozniak, you are, technically, still an Apple employee. Shouldn't be too hard for you to get an audience with mr Cook.

a) Apple is by far the largest company in this business, and thus, they have the money and power to change it


How? And why should they spend their money to help out competitors?

I don't think it really does matter how big or rich a company is. There are patent trolls out there that manage to get their hands on a single key patent and use it to extract money from companies that are bigger and richer.

The law has made the rules by which companies now fight each other. It's the law and the rules that have to change. Sure Apple can lobby for that, but I don't think their lobbying power depends on how rich they are, unless they want to bribe people.
