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.

MOS6510,

"I think history has shown that industries aren't likely to change themselves. The record companies are still fighter their own customers for example."

I don't think they're likely to change either, but unlike you I don't believe it's because they cannot, but rather that they choose not to.

Patents obviously favor the long-time established players over newcomers. It doesn't make business sense for an MNC to throw away that leverage even if it's the right thing to do. So I don't expect big businesses to do the right thing.


However the real disappointment comes from the governments who've lost the capacity to serve the public interests. The government lost this ability precisely because those in charge are the very same people running the corporations.
