Ask Phoebe week #1

Green Embers was my first official questioner and this is what he would like to know.

what are your thoughts on this article about a bill to stop patent trolling?

For starters I have to be honest, I don’t read up much on articles such as these, so answering this question was a slight challenge for me. I had to do a little more research and then figure out how I felt once I knew wth they were talking about. lol I’m hoping I understood the subject matter correctly or my answer to this may come off sounding cookoo. πŸ˜€

I’ve often heard that Samsung and Apple were always engaged in a patent war over who had what idea first, and who was infringing. I had no idea that so many others were filing such claims. Why not though, right? I mean the world is full of frivolous BS claims and or lawsuits about practically nothing, so why not patents too.

After reading this article, I believe the bill to be a good one. It may need a little fine tuning here or there, but it’s a start. Levying fees and increasing plead requirements can only help in reducing the amount of ridiculous claims, leaving room for the legitimate ones. I know that if I had a product out there, I would not appreciate someone coming out of the woodwork and professing entitlement to my idea without having to make an effort at it, and show proof their claim was valid. Hell, who knows.. it may even slow down the constant war between high-ranking companies like Samsung and Apple.

Can’t we all just get along? πŸ˜€

Did I answer your question Green Embers?

  1. Yup my thoughts exactly! Oh in the mobile world it is amazing, almost every company is suing the other company, not just Samsung and Apple. I think a lot have been settled out of court now. It’s been such a mess though, we should all just get a long. πŸ˜€

  2. This makes me feel as though I am back in school…in a good way…I am looking forward to more questions and answers. I hope I have β€œbrain power” available, when I sit down to read at the end of the day (some day soon) to think of a good question to ask. I hope this works Phoebe, I think it’ll be fun!

    • Thank you, I’m glad you like the idea. πŸ™‚ I’m trying to decide what day of the week shall be the “ask Phoebe” day, but there should be another post up very soon. πŸ˜‰
