That is an interesting one which I hadn't thought of.

Ok .. let me get it correctly .. one expects to be very talented very successful designer paid probably at least 3x over the said $42K, inventing highly sophisticated stuff for which you hope to get even more $$$ and all that would be validated by a law school student (well ... maybe an engineering one...) working after hours for the said highly motivating $42K ... Is it only me to see something worong with this picture? Just to put it in perspective: I saw a postdoc paying for a room (literally: a room: ~ 10 ft x 14 ft) ~$1300 just because it was in Cambridge (Mass) close to the Kendall Square area. Mercifully the heating was included ... Anybody lately checked the prices of academic textbooks?

It`s amusing how huge companies like Apple and Samsung fight each other because of the design patents while small companies initiate trademark infringement procedures that can ruin them because usually such trials last for years. Creating a patent law treaty is a nice idea and hopefully this will help patent offices to be more efficient

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
