Patent Hoarder Says Patent System Is Just Fine
from the monorail! dept
Patent hoarder Nathan Myhrvold is at it again, repeating his usual schtick that the patent system is just fine. Myhrvold, who’s hardly an unbiased source on the matter says everything’s okay simply because there aren’t very many patent lawsuits — a complete red herring. The issue isn’t the number of lawsuits generated, though there are plenty of wasteful, drawn out ones, it’s that the current system doesn’t award or encourage innovation. He also says “there isn’t any hard data to support” the idea that patent trolls are a problem. Maybe he just doesn’t like being called a troll. Fair enough: patent-hoarding hobbits like Myhrvold are a problem.

What does any of this have to do with IP?
don't outlaw lipsyncying

Re: don't outlaw lipsyncying
Don’t outlaw Dorpus. He used to occasionally pop up with an insightful, albeit unpopular and perhaps esoteric, observation. Lately his comments have just been drivel. Don’t ban him, no. Instead we should hope for his full recover from whatever intellectually debilitating trauma he has suffered.

Unless the topic is “What Henti is best” – Dorpus’s got noth’n.

Blows to the head from baseball bats are not something one recovers from. That is why baseball bats are an effective way to deal with the things that go bump in the night in Call of Cthulhu.
Things men were not ment to know -> Dorpus.

Just as a sidenote, I find it very amusing that the relevant google ad on this page was “Dam Trolls. Find Dam Trolls on EBay.”
