Legal Since competing on merit is looked down upon in the computer and software world, companies in this business usually go for the blindfolded chick with the scale and sword. Up until recently, Microsoft didn't go for the whole patent litigation thing, but now that they've tasted some, they want more. They just sued Barnes & Noble, Foxconn, and Inventec for patent infringement because they use Android.

These suits freeze innovation for Americans too, & forces great products to avoid America entirely (if that's enough of a market for them). The bad laws pushed through by the corporations (including non-American corporations) are the trouble.

"Blame America" = only Americans can fix the problem right to keep innovation going.
