The failing solutions are expensive
Various solutions have been tried to fix the problems of software patents, but none are working.
The expense given to these solutions confirms there is a big problem.
How much money and how much skilled people's time is being spent on these?
- Buying harmful patents
- Community patent review
- Defensive patent acquisition
- Defensive patent pools
- Invalidate the most harmful
The money spent on these schemes is one of the financial costs to society, along with the money spent and lost in litigation.
