HTC Takes Revenge; Hits Apple

| Bruce Perens has written in detail about 
| the problems of software patents, âPatents, 
| originally created to stimulate innovation, 
| may now be having the opposite effect, at 
| least in the software industry. Plagued by 
| an exponential growth in software patents, 
| many of which are not valid, software 
| vendors and developers must navigate a 
| potential minefield to avoid patent 
| infringement and future lawsuits. Coupled 
| with strategies to exploit this confusion 
| over patents, especially in standards 
| setting organizations, it appears that 
| software advancement will become stifled 
| unless legal action is taken to resolve the 
| situation...â
| He further wrote ... âPatent royalties tend 
| to create discrimination against small-to-
| medium-sized businesses developing any form 
| of software, and especially against Open 
| Source developers.
| The largest businesses in an industry 
| generally have patent cross-licenses with 
| their peers, and thus they may ignore each 
| other's patents while smaller businesses 
| have no choice but to license those patents 
| if they use them. As a result, there is a 
| "tax" upon technology that small businesses 
| must pay while the largest businesses are 
| exempt.â
| Software patents have become weapons for 
| companies to fight with each other. This 
| not only wastes valuable resources but also 
| time of courts. Many activists and experts 
| have been raising questions about the 
| legality of software patents. 
| Many countries including India do no allow 
| software patents.
