That's an apt description of life itself if you think about it.

Microsoft, Google, Apple, etc... don't want it to go away. Sure they use it to launch costly lawyer wars against each other, but more importantly for them they can crush potential competition.

At one time I believed they believed their motto "Don't be evil". So yes, they have said they are for patent reform. So has Oracle.

Google's just doing back what MS did to them first, so eh.

So this insane circus will continue for quite awhile, and the only ones getting better off are the fucking lawyers.
