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. 😀
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? 😀
