Jag kan inte lÃ¥t bli att pÃ¥minna er om den hÃ¤r:
â€œIf people had understood how patents would be granted when most of todayâ€™s ideas were invented and had taken out patents, the industry would be at a complete stand-still today. The solution â€¦ is patent exchanges â€¦ and patenting as much as we canâ€¦ . A future start-up with no patents of its own will be forced to pay whatever price the giants choose to impose. That price might be high: Established companies have an interest in excluding future competitors.â€ Fred Warshofsky, The Patent Wars 170-71 (NY: Wiley 1994).
