Legal Yesterday, we were treated to another preliminary injunction on a product due to patent trolling. Over the past few years, some companies have resorted to patent trolling instead of competing on merit, using frivolous and obvious software and design patents to block competitors - even though this obviously shouldn't be legal. The fact that this is, in fact, legal, is baffling, and up until a few months ago, a regular topic here on OSNews. At some point - I stopped reporting on the matter. The reason for this is simple: I realised that intellectual property law exists outside of regular democratic processes and is, in fact, wholly and utterly totalitarian. What's the point in reporting on something we can't change via legal means?

There is a legal way to change this.

Here your post got really interesting...

Just use your legal expertise to find legal ways to correct it.

.. and here you blew it.

If you're going to contradict a reasonably well-argued position, you'll need to come up with a better argument, and not leave that task up to the reader. That doesn't make sense.

You have confused humor with an argument.
