Google This. This is what we need. These are the kind of steps from which we all benefit. Google has just announced the Open Patent Non-Assertion Pledge: the company promises not to sue any users, distributors, or developers of open source products based on the patents it owns (unless first attacked).

Thank you for sharing your experience Alfman,

You're (With all due respect) "only" one example of how IP has negative effects on innovation.

It's very interesting to hear about those who can't align an army of lawyers to defend (or enforce) their rights. You’re already the second one (Only in this thread) that experienced that. The situation is even worse than I thought :-(
