Summary:
Second, and maybe more important, is the fact that the U.S. patent situation is a mess because of software patents. It’s a minefield that is so difficult to navigate that even big companies that can afford to hire a battery of lawyers can still step on a nasty and get its feet blown off. Smaller software development companies probably aren’t going to be better off. It’s like playing hopscotch on a minefield; and minefields don’t discriminate. They blow up everyone. How can developers innovate with this insane setup? With great difficulty and at great risk. It’s just better to abolish all software patents entitrely. After all, if you want people to really be safe on a minefield, you don’t start handing out metal detectors. You clear the minefield. That’s the only real solution.
