You see, instead of working on technology, company needs to spend resources on fighting patent battles and shaking off patent racketeers. Clear demonstration of how rotten the whole patent system is.

More worse it means companies may in the future have more reasons to not deliver, manufacter and R&D in western markets. The whole process to invent, produce and market products becomes horrible unprofitable and dangerous (as in hard to calculate) making our western markets very unacctractive compared to the large, open and straith forward asian markets.

Our current system forces that. Horrible for us customers, employees, investors and inventers. We should get familar with the idea to turn ourselfs into a 4th world tech region. We may need to start teaching and learning chinese in our schools fast to offer for our children a way to participate and shape up there future where the future is: in asia.
