This has to be the best news out of the U.S. legal system in a long time: Famous judge spikes Apple-Google case, calls patent system “dysfunctional”. Instead of ‘fostering innovation’ the patent system has often become a weapon used by rich companies to keep out new entrants and to reduce competition in the markets they claim to “serve”. Particularly a problem in high tech industries. Hope Posner’s opinion is upheld!
