Legal "America's broken patent system needs major reform to protect innovators and the public. Today, the Electronic Frontier Foundation is announcing a major new boost to its patent work: a half-million dollars in funding from entrepreneur Mark Cuban and game developer Markus 'Notch' Persson."

But $500k is roughly one lawyer-year, including overhead.

A $10M donation would sustain another lawyer indefinitely, and then we'd be talking.
