True. But also:
Not permitting the owner of a FRAND- encumbered patent to have an injunction
against someone unwilling to pay FRAND royalties is tantamount to making the
patent user to be the dictator of the royalties by using the patent and paying
nothing at all, while doing a stickup job of everybody else over a whole slew of
"non-standards-essential" patents on the obvious.
We have a perfect conundrum. The only solution is that everybody (including
Uncle Sam) realizes that we have a perfectly ridiculous situation in which a
major part of the problem is that too much has been patented which should never
have been allowed to be patented in the first place.
