Patents are for trolling and lawyers, nothing more. They are anti humanity pretty much. Sort of a who was first to make a comment/file a document with some office in some country. First, first first, ... just trolling and annoying. The patent offices will patent everything because they get money from that. It's a never ending broken cycle.

They patent anything that fits the criteria, which are 1) must have utility, 2) must be novel, and 3) cannot be obvious. USPTO researchers do a decent amount of research to make sure the application meets all 3 criteria, but that is not comprehensive. It's up to individuals/corporations to challenge the validity of patents beyond the basic criteria.

As for "anti-humanity", you're oversimplifying things. Most legal scholars recognize the benefits to society that patents offer, namely the protection of the profit motive in research and development. The propriety of the length of patents (20 years in the US) is a topic of debate, because the benefit of R&D of new ideas and technology driven by the profit motive must be balanced with the negative impact initial high prices have on consumers.

I'm in favor of reducing patents to 15 years, because 20 years is a lot longer than it used to be with respect to commerce and technology. I recognize that the monopolies granted by patents are a necessary evil to drive innovation, especially for technologies that are easily reverse engineered and reproduced.

Rooting for TSMC, I hate patent trolls.

It would be one thing if they were fighting over newly developed technology. 28 nm is 10 years old, this isn't new. If there was a patent problem, it should have been sorted a long time ago. GlobalFoundries must be struggling and needing a bail out to pull this now.

This could be interesting if goflo wins.

Since goflo is a US company, wonder if the Judge is going to have a bias.

This is probably a continuation of this.

GlobalFoundries has been crying wolf for sometime now.

Not only have UMC/GloFo*/SMIC brought out better nodes than TSMC, yet however they all have fallen with better products.

*Includes Chartered.

This will certainly be an issue TSMC will raise in court. Even if TSMC did infringe, the damages will be limited to the time frame between when the infringement began and when GF knew or should have known about it. This is known as the duty to mitigate damages. In other words, you can't sit back and let damages pile up if you know someone else is infringing on your patent.
