"The innovation protected by software patents is highly integrated with
hardware. All of it must remain eligible for protection."

A hammer is possible to patent.
It becomes held with the hand of the mason.

The hand and hammer become patentable.

How can this not stifle creativity?

Patents an "innovation currency"
Authored by: Gringo_ on Monday, November 26 2012 @ 11:05 PM EST

Kappos is smart - he's seen the writing on the wall, and is getting out while he can make a quite getaway. If he stuck around, he would see the crowds grow angry and soon start storming the gates with pitchforks and tar and feather for him - or worse. They won't be taking "enough already" for an answer, either. I wonder how much money he made off of all those bogus patents he issued? There are big bucks in that business, for sure.

Inflation

If it's a currency, then its inflation rate is through the roof and increasing
all the time due to the expanding supply.

Yet somehow, they are not all decreasing in value. That doesn't sound like a
currency to me.
