Re: Holding companies are the problem.... Software patents only exist to provide something to sue people over. A good example is the constant rounds of bullshit in the smartphone industry.

We spend millions of dollars developing software that works with our hardware. I've personally written many, many software patents over the years. In very few cases was it done for the purpose of suing someone. Rather, it was done to protect the engineering innovation and R&D dollars spent in developing the software.
No more corruption, lying and unremitting stupidity by Obama. Impeach the clueless, anti-business, socialist now.
But wait... didnt you already say your software is copyrighted and thus can't be stolen? So what is it you are scared of?
Are you also saying that nobody else can come along and innovate a better implementation on "your" hardware by writing better software?
