  • Matthew Broersma: "Developers gather to protest patents" (CNET, April 28, 2003), which said or is used to support somebody saying: "United States, where such patents are allowed, large corporations such as IBM routinely stockpile patents to be used against competitors--usually to the detriment of smaller companies"

  • Kevin G. Rivette & David Kline: "Surviving a War With Patents" (UpsideToday v. 10.12.1999), which is used to support the claim that "patents can be used to delay or stifle innovation through the use of patent pools, patent thickets, exclusive licensing, and other abusive patent enforcement tactics"
