More IP sparring among companies. Patents and Copyrights are important for companies and individuals to maintain some modicum of protection for IP, but it would be interesting to know how many patent infringement lawsuits are in process on any particular day in the U.S. alone, and how much prosecuting and defending those lawsuits will cost regardless of the outcome. Of course, that cost has to include not only the lawyers and judges, but also the time of the engineers involved. It would also be interesting to know what percentage of those lawsuits are successful.

Thankfully Spansion is doing much better now than Nov 88 when the patents were originally filed. Meanwhile, Samsung is on a roll.
