Software patents are hurting the software industry by allowing big incumbents and patent trolls or NPE’s (non practising entities) to place a huge tax on newcomers. (or in Microsoft’s case, make Android as expensive as possible to manufacturers in the hope of making their windows mobile OS more appealing)

Anyway, not many people would argue that it’s a bad situation, even President Obama said as much recently when trying to rein in the patent problem.

So what to do? Why get silly patent applications that should never be granted dismissed by the PTO that’s what!

reading this article shows that it isn’t as hard as it seems and doesn’t take much time. If every coder got one application blown away a month it would go a long way to making sure that once the current batch of rubbish patents have expired or been ruled invalid there were not a new batch waiting in the wings to take their place.

  47. Clear Braces Says:

    We are a group of dentists and orthodontists who started this mission to cater the needs of massive population. We believe that there are too little service providers for a huge number of cases of misaligned and crooked teeth. Very less advertising campaigns and general awareness programs about clear aligners are in media. They are very few people who actually know that there is a comfortable and removable way of straightening the teeth without hustle of ugly looking brackets and wires pinching the mouth from every corner. So we decided to launch our company which is offering Aligners made up of highest standards BPA free material which has highest efficiency of moving teeth because of its high tensile strength and crack resistance is unparalleled to any material in the world. Our Aligners are odor free and stain resistant. We have worked very hard to learn the technology and software to claim what we have just said and eliminate all these problems associated with ordinary materials of plastic trays.
