Legal "No institution is more responsible for the recent explosion of patent litigation in the software industry, the rise of patent trolls, and the proliferation of patent thickets than the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The patent court's thirtieth birthday this week is a good time to ask whether it was a mistake to give the nation's most patent-friendly appeals court such broad authority over the patent system." Interesting.

Rogue implies rebellion, independence, guerillas, Luke Skywalker, X Wings...

No, the appeals court were very much in lock step with the interests of established big businesses. They may as well have built their own that's-no-moon with a two metre wide weak spot.
