This is known as "innovation through litigation." You push patents and
copyrights through an overwhelmed Patent office and then sue anyone that
claims original design. You make sure your lawyers simply have bigger legal
clubs with which to bash the opposition. Unfortunately, a financial Goliath
can give a small business entrepreneur like David a pretty bad time in this
environment.

Subject: Re: IBM Patents Idea of Making Your Data Crappier Over Time

I don't work for IBM, but another possible motive for slapping patents on
anything that moves may be part of a "conceptual cold-war stockpile" as
noted by Yahoo's suit against Facebook.  The strategy resembles nothing so
much as "grab everything and sort it out later.  Maybe much, much later."
