I can't roll my eyes any harder lately....
After seeing Nokia vs Apple and Kodak vs Apple and RIM, I think there really needs to be patent reform. Sure, you want to protect an idea, but there are companies who patent ideas and never used the patent. When someone uses the patent they don't use, they sue for money. They are known as patent trolls and that can be seen as a reason why the patent system in the US is broken. I'm sure that it won't happen in other countries... or is it?
