Microsoft Bart Eppenauer, Microsoft's chief patent guy, in an interview with The Verge: "We believe our patent laws have served the country very well." Loosely translated, this reads: "This system that gives me my six-figure income and is a fine anti-competitive tool for my company have served me and my company well, the damage to the industry be damned."

It appears that for every Lord Macbeth (Steve Ballmer) there is conniving Lady Macbeth (Bart Eppenauer) working behind the scenes telling Lord Macbeth that it'll help them but in reality they're lining their own pocket.
