Legal "The man who co-founded Apple - the world's most valuable company - in the garage of Steve Jobs' parents, fears the torrent of intellectual property lawsuits being filed by companies such as Apple, Samsung, Google, HTC and Nokia could prevent future entrepreneurs from treading a path to technology fortune." Well, mr Wozniak, you are, technically, still an Apple employee. Shouldn't be too hard for you to get an audience with mr Cook.

If "they" don't patent every single stupid idea someone else will and will sue them.


Nonsense, there has always been a simple solution for that. Simply publish every single stupid idea you get, and you have instant protection against the case of someone else patenting it and suing you.

So my suggestion to be unable to patent silly 'n' obvious stuff is nonsense, but your idea to patent everything, including the kitchen sink, and then basically give it away isn't?

Doesn't this come down to the same thing (no suing over silly stuff), only my solution does away with all the administrative work?

Your solution still leaves the door open for patent trolls and companies that don't patent to give away free.
