Legal "America's broken patent system needs major reform to protect innovators and the public. Today, the Electronic Frontier Foundation is announcing a major new boost to its patent work: a half-million dollars in funding from entrepreneur Mark Cuban and game developer Markus 'Notch' Persson." Notch putting his money where his mouth is. Classy guy. Even if a creeper literally just blew up the front of my house.

Hi,

Yes - we should file a class action against all lawyers! The only thing we need is someone willing to take on the case... ;-)

I suspect if the money is right real lawyers would gladly give it a go!

Lawyers are like doctors in the US. They all get paid very well, but some more than others. And schooling is incredibly expensive. Right now, in the US, law schools are graduating more than law firms are hiring. There is a downward pressure on their salaries.
