Absurd US Patent Law Saga Continues

Dear Readers,

This is our last post on the US patent law situation and perhaps our last post on LawPundit period. We are so fed up with the idiocy of the US patent law system and the apparent lack of any sense in the US legal community on this issue, that we think it is time we retire from this field and leave it to those who truly have no clue.

OUT.Law.com has a posting titled Another patent owner, another BlackBerry lawsuit where they write:

"A small company is threatening to darken the screens of BlackBerry devices in a case of deja vu for the manufacturer Research In Motion. Just two months after settling with NTP, another patent owner, Visto, is suing RIM over wireless email patents.
Buoyed with confidence from recent jury and US Patent Office endorsements for its intellectual property, Visto announced on Monday that RIM should pay damages, destroy all BlackBerry devices in the US and ban future sales because it has infringed four Visto patents.
"

Brilliant. Only a totally flawed patent system could lead to this kind of ludicrousy.
