Legal Since I want to get this out of my system: here's a set of proposals to fix (okay, replace) the current failing patent system. No lengthy diatribe or introduction, just a raw list.

How many cases can you name of a small company successfully suing a big one?


I thought this happens regularly, but hardly makes news because they always quietly settle out of court by the time it would make headlines. The only time we see news is during the leadup, when the smaller company is sucessfully threatening blocking of sales of some major product.

Even if they were settled the original filings would still be public. Do you have any evidence that this actually happens? I haven't heard this from any trustworthy source, but I regularly hear otherwise, e.g. PG quote above.
