They're all patent trolls.

If corporate america justifies itself by saying that competition breeds excellence, then patents quell that.

If you just think that technology should keep advancing and getting better, then patents hinder that as well.

The only thing patents seem to be good for is to ensure that someone makes a lot of dough off something that probably wasn't even invented or developed in a vacuum.

Great show, Mr. Gadgets. I sometimes wish you had a video cast, where you dressed up in wacky pseudo-scientist outfits and did fun experiments that we could all try at home. But until you get that television deal, I'll settle for your very fine HPR audio shows.
