I agree with this entirely.

It's not so much being creative enough - it's being bothered. frankly these people not only lack any creative flows, but are quite happy to leech of others hard earned fortune. which takes very little effort.... if any.

And i sometimes wonder why i've lost all faith in mankind....rofl.

Im not very savvy when it comes to patents so forgive me if this is wrong.

However I think Patents unless used should be discontinued. Soon enough there will be a patent on everything and anyone wishing to implement something already patented is going to get sued.

This would be in the case that the offending company did not realise the technology was already patented.

Some Joe had an idea for something along the lines of a stow away, fold out gambling touch screen game for an airplane or train and all of a sudden it's the same as a very successful product on the market 10 years later with the only common trait being a touch screen.

Why has this not been brought up when PDA's first hit the market? Because all he's after is money and doesn't care about the patent.

Also, I think the scetch must have been on a napkin at the local pub one night or something.

There are companies ( can't remember what its called) that specializing in making patents non stop and suing in the future. Srsly, thats all they do. I think these business hinder technology and should have action taken against them.

That picture and the DS couldn't be more different. The DS isn't a table. This is ridiculous.

@Nubcake - I agree. These companies don't do anything but sue people. That's ridiculous. They think they're clever but they're only hindering actual inventors from making things because the fear of a lawsuit hinders around every idea ever.

So basically, anything that contains a fold out touch screen or a touch screen period falls under this patent.

This guy is a moron.

There are a number of companies that do this as a source of income. They're called patent trolls. All they do is buy up patents, wait, then file a number of lawsuits for a payday. NTP did this to RIM not too long ago. Although the creater of the technology started the company, he waited until RIM became profitable to strike.
