Stating that our constitution is more important than what some other country things is the right thing to do, but we need to go farther. Copyrights and patents are only constitutional as long as they reasonably "promote the useful arts and sciences," but these international treaties being championed by WIPO are harming the arts and sciences. Treaties and foreign laws should NEVER trump the constitution.
No, he doesn't have the right to sue people who aren't infringing his patent. If I read correctly, the point here is to fight the lawsuits that should never have been filed and leave alone those who do have the right to sue.
I would have had no idea this guy worked for Best Buy nor would I have associated this video with Best Buy in any way had they not fired him. Had they simply left him alone, I would have had a good laugh and gone on my merry way without ever thinking once about Best Buy.
Best Buy, welcome to the Internet. It's the future, so get used to it.
I'd be much better able to defend my stance on patents if I could cite an actual study that shows even pharma doesn't need them. Where can I read about that study? I was under the impression that any country large enough to have a real pharma industry had already been corrupted by the likes of WIPO.
