Legal Since I want to get this out of my system: here's a set of proposals to fix (okay, replace) the current failing patent system. No lengthy diatribe or introduction, just a raw list.

If the patent isn't assumed to be valid, how should the aggressor argue that no prior art exists? Arguing something doesn't exist is basically impossible.

Perhaps it would be better to allow the other party to show that the aggressor's patent is invalid (as they only have to show an example of prior art).
