it is not enough to have a god idea, until one does not apply for protection - patent - everybody else could claim it, and to void discrepancy the first filed idea get protected, except in thee US where for a while you could "prove", that you had that idea earlier, but you just did not border to file for a patent. The first file principle is used in the rest of the world for very long time, the US is jut starting to warm up that idea, but according the latest patent law proposal, with enough money you could fix everything...

Making patent rights is helpfull for their inventions. Where as copying them is not good. Some times same ideas strike to various people around the same time and they do it. But finally those who ever patended gets the benifit.Let us wait and see what the Judge decides.

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.
