Too many lawyers, Too little freedom

There are way too many lawyers. These two articles prove that. Good Technology Sued over Wireless Patents NTP, having had its patents invalidated countless times has taken a stock in Visto and opened another litigation front, this time against Good Technology. I guess they coulnd't completely drain RIM's pockets so they have taken on additional fish. Microsoft Changes Blog Shutdown Policies Yup, we're world wide with this blogging thing. Microsoft is saying that they will notify visitors when the content has been removed and will in some cases actually move it elsewhere to make local (censuring) governments happy. Nice duck and cover. Is it just me or is this censure and legal action instead of innovation becoming a little too prevalent?

    At this point is there a company that is not being sued by NTP? Sounds like Rambus of the late 90’s.

    I think this points more to the flawed patent system than anything else. It’s a shame that all this progress is being held back over the legal issue.
