In Defense of Process Patents

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 2 years ago

Patents 0

An anonymous reader writes "In light of the ruling against the University of California patent trolls seeking to claim ownership of the "Interactive Web," founding attorney of Beacon Hill Law, Joe Stanganelli, has written an article defending process patents. In it, he refers to technology pundits as "bizarro" and argues that it's a misconception that patents stifle innovation. As he writes, "What I do not understand is — had the jury determined Eolas's patents valid — why it would be A-OK for dozens of already megarich corporations to get even richer adopting technology they did not invent or have legal permission to use, but somehow immoral for the actual creators of the technology to likewise profit.""
