Legal Fascinating infographic on the all the patent stuff going on in the mobile world today. Another infographic summarises the patent lawsuits between Apple and Samsung specifically (via). On a sidenote, what's the deal with infographics these days? Did someone decide they were cool without telling me?

given the fact that are [sic] elected representatives (and pretty much anybody who ends up on a voting ballot) work for the patent holders.


I think you basically summarized it yourself right there.

The more often this ridiculousness shows up in the press, the more people will continue to push back on their public officials to do something about it.

More and more people I know are becoming familiar with the patent lawsuits and how harmful they are to consumers. If every blog and news site keeps ramming this down people's throats, they have no choice but to become informed.

The more often they see it, the more often they'll think about it.

Stop pretending the world doesn't work this way.

FWIW, I read almost every article about this topic, even though I'm already extremely familiar with it - and I hope to get some tidbit of information out of each one that I can use to educate myself and others on the intricacies - so stuff it.

I think there might a point of diminishing returns somewhere there, a "good enough" one (generally, wasting one bit of life here, another there...)
