A year of patents, mobile fights, and one big IPO,
but, as written by Jim Kerstetter at CNET News,
Kerstetter writes inter alia:"nothing dominated the news like the fight over intellectual property".
"... one story dominated them all this year: the U.S. patent system.Read the whole thing.
... why are people so upset?
... It's because we all finally know what patents mean and how easily the process can be abused.
... We saw how patents can affect the technology we use... and we didn't like it."
It is a nicely written article on this vexing topic.
