Legal Several days ago when Apple hinted at legal action against Palm, we held our breath to see just what would happen. Now Palm has stepped up to the plate boldly and hinted that they'd fight whatever legal action is thrown at them.

They have been complacent or patent trolls wouldn't get away with what they are doing.

Even if it is legal (and it is) this does not mean that the patent system is deeply flawed. Patents should cover products and physical implementations and not ideas.

Frankly it is almost as stupid as patenting sections of the human genome (which some pharmaceutical companies have done).

I agree that patents should exist, but not in the current form. A lot of the trouble would be prevented if the patent office wouldn't grant patents so complacently.

Who cares whether you're american or not?

What the hell does prison have to do with patent law?
