Summary:
I got the following note from a friend at a big software company that was founded in the mid-1990's: Having worked at the big companies it has always amazed me the energy that goes into creating the stack of patents. We have lawyers who we sit down with to go over new products and releases and they generate 10s or 100s of patent filings out of which a few actual patents will end up being granted in a few years. I have around 40 patents for what I would consider innovative work but 99% of them are just for the things anyone would have to do in order to solve the actual problem.
