Honan wrote on Tuesday, “These are the tapeworms crawling through the nutrient-rich belly of American innovation, full of bile and [expletive], slowly starving us to death.”

Interesting that it’s not just groups like Lodsys any more. Companies like Apple, among others, have now started using patent suits to prevent competitors from gaining market share.

Patents should be used to prevent the big boys from taking advantage of the little guys; not to suffocate innovation and competition.
