Exposing the embarrassing underbelly of patent law: http://www.pcworld.com/article/184472/apple_to_nokia_stop_stealing_our_technology.html?tk=nl_dnx_h_crawl

Corporations hold patents to leverage the law to gain competitive advantage.  They also hold them to counter strike when others attempt to use this disgraceful channel of capitalistic arm wrestling.  In the case of Apple and Nokia, they're both equally "thieves" and both equally "burglarized." 

Another disgusting element of our patent system is that it forms a perfect "money pit" for tax write offs.  Corporations spend billions on "research," produce nothing more than patent application paperwork, then have the audacity to further abuse the system by attempting to harm competitors and siphon cash away from them - legally.  Apple and Nokia are just as guilty of being thieves and just as guilty of abusing the system by claiming falsely that they were robbed.

Truly a sick system that needs retooling.
