This is a sustainability-oriented blog. Topics pertaining Energy Efficiency (EE), Telecommuting, Sustainable Health/Wellness, etc., but mainly focus on solutions to non-sustainable practices and trying to address means and methods for resolving them. Sustainability is something that we all have to do, sooner or later! (Low politico please!).
So, as the Patent Wars start to heat up, like nothing that has ever gone before... The weird and wacky step out into space to duke it out.
It's gonna definitely get ugly as you have Google buying Motorola mobile for its production capacity and it's war chest of some 1,600 telcom-type patents. GoogaZilla, or Moto-oogle will be able to take on the likes of Apple and MicroSkype, now.
Rumor has it that Apple will buy up ARM Holdings for its patents, even though it already licenses them. ARM owns more than a hand-full of key smart phone patents.
In the end, we could have only a few companies that own, or have exclusive rights to, most of the patent technology in the know universe.
In the end, an you may have to go to another world or another universe to be able to operate freely in the patent-protected tech world that's evolving. When you get there, you may well find Samsung knocking loudly at the PoD Door. Whatever you do, don't let 'em in!
