Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

Hi,

My name is Christoffer and I am most likely an infringer on a large amount of ridiculous software patents in thud U.S. where my software Stoffi is available for download.

I don't have a legal team. I don't have a single lawyer. I create my stuff for free, on my own.

This bullshit will kill my project and everything I have done if the madness spreads. If Apple could shut me down and it benefited them, they would.

They are the bad guys, as is the USPO, the politicians, the non-practicing entities, the lobbyist, etc.

The ONLY non-bad guy here is the one who can't change the system (directly or indirectly).
