A few points
1: Here's another idea. The first raft of 'we are suing you' cases for any given patent have to go through and be proven valid before ANY further proceedings. Sick and tired of seeing cases handled and rewards given out on patents which are then invalidated a few weeks later.
2: Additionally if a patent is proven invalid, that invalidity should roll backwards. Anyone the company contacted demanding money for license fees within a certain timeframe should have their money returned as the patent they were paying for didn't exist. It was fraudulent. This should only span for a year or two backwards.
3: Actually have the patents reviewed properly, the old way. What happened to the good old days where you had to show something working before you patented it?
4: I like the idea of only being able to sue if you produce something based on the patent.
5: Most important one (to me) no selling of patents. Patents are designed to protect the INVENTOR not the company who bought them.
A patent (/ˈpætənt/ or /ˈpeɪtənt/) is a form of intellectual property. It consists of a set of exclusive rights granted by a sovereign state to an inventor or their assignee for a limited period of time,
So stop letting them sell patents between each other. If a company fails they shouldn't be able to sell their IP portfolio, they should just fade into nothingness and have their patents made open, or revoked.
6: I hope that these people get taken to court by Marvel. They're the ones with the rights to SHIELD.
