Google This. This is what we need. These are the kind of steps from which we all benefit. Google has just announced the Open Patent Non-Assertion Pledge: the company promises not to sue any users, distributors, or developers of open source products based on the patents it owns (unless first attacked).

Let's put your hate of Google by side for a while...

There is one little problem with the question you've asked a few times over your rants

Just one iteration of it:

What specific web developments were stalled immensely by IP related issues?


You want as a proof for you point that we show you how many developments were blocked or even abandoned because of of IP related issues.

+1 for the semantic trick

How do you want us to point namely on products that don't exist because of these issues??? It's like asking the names of kids that aren’t on this planet because of contraception.

The very few public cases we hear about are (probably) an infinitely small portion of those really affected.
