Microsoft: patent system “served the country very well”

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.”
