Legal "Yahoo has made good on its threat of last month and filed a patent infringement suit against Facebook." Yup, another patent battle. Great for innovation, this. Destroying the technology industry, one patent at a time.

I like to read about patent issues, particularly stuff written by Thom (I like the style and his point of view is pretty much the same with mine).

My post should probably end with some suggestion on what you could do if you don't like these stories, but I guess I'll break the rule and start this day peacefully ;) .

I too like being informed about patent bullshit and knowing that I'm not the only one thinking this : "Destroying the technology industry, one patent at a time."

No, those of us that are constantly bitching about it is the reason why he said he was going to dial the patent stories back ;) But I say if you're going to pick and choose which ones to post (which he should), why not concentrate on the ones where something/somebody actually gets shut down?

The more you post about 'company x sues company y over some overly broad patents', the less people like me are going to pay attention when something REALLY bad happens as a result of patents and you decide to tell us about it.

or... the more Thom writes about patents, the more people get pissed off. And that's what we want - people being pissed off by patents ;)
