Legal Countries are starting to get into the patent business; countries like France and South Korea are setting up patent entities to protect domestic companies. "Intellectual Discovery presents itself as a defensive alliance: if a South Korean company finds itself targeted in a lawsuit, for instance, it can access the patents being compiled by Intellectual Discovery to hit back." I support this. If, say, a small Dutch company were to come under unfair patent aggression by bullies like Apple and Microsoft (quite likely these days), I damn well expect my government to protect them from it. If you can't fix the system, work with it. As simple as that.

I agree - but if you have a cancer you fix it by eliminating it not making it more benign.

I meant fix in a radical sense - making the problem go away. Governments should not support these

undemocratic, totalitarian, and unethical

which arming with more IP is. This is just MAD and we need to get away from this madness.

What about "fixed" like a pet?

I was thinking more on the lines of putting down.
