Patent Attorney

While it may be easy to take sides, it is tough to completely blame the combatants in the patent wars. All sides recognize we have a lousy system that leads to the kind of expensive legal wrangling we now see going on. Certainly, if a company has intellectual property that it needs to protect there needs to be a mechanism for that to occur. But given how apparently easy it is these days to file a patent on just about anything , it seems the system has been outrun by those who can take advantage of it, and those who have no choice but to play by the existing rules. (Did you know there is one for toast? Actually it is called a bread refreshing method). If the mechanism for protection becomes a weapon for destruction than somewhere a wrong turn has been taken.
