I personally consider patents as an arsenal of business cold war. Companies have plenty of patents for a fear factor. This leads to interesting cross licensing but also in the telecommunication field patents are used to regulate margets so that new and smaller players have trouble getting in. For example about every mobile communication standard has been patented. Patents are controversial and seem to be a big mess. It remains to be seen how big mess it will become after EU decides to make some wise decisions.
