good artists copy, great artists steal a blog post by Jonathan Schwartz (former Sun CEO) - says what I have heard many people say, but he puts it in elegant simple terms with a up close personal perspective. A great read about patents, and IP and how they are used.

Yes! Great read.

One of my cycling friends makes a good bit of money testifying in patent cases, and he describes the process as you file a provisional open to amendment, then as you see the field evolve you amend, and strike against a big player with a small enough amount that you can get a payoff.

If we're going to continue the strong pace of innovation, we've got to reform the patent system.
