Microsoft Bart Eppenauer, Microsoft's chief patent guy, in an interview with The Verge: "We believe our patent laws have served the country very well." Loosely translated, this reads: "This system that gives me my six-figure income and is a fine anti-competitive tool for my company have served me and my company well, the damage to the industry be damned."

Really, you believe that? How can anyone even remotely believe that software patents have done anything to help, the only thing they do is prevent innovation and create another revenue stream for lazy companies that actually filed for a patent for things that are so obvious.
