Patents are published without objective peer-review. Obvious reasons prevent real peer review, but if the patent content is validated through a follow-up peer-reviewed paper, that would be better.

The purchase of patents should be illegal when a company goes defunct. Patents should revert to their inventors on a company's demise.

In the old days, screws were patented. The square drive screw was superior to a Phillips head, yet its patent precluded its widespread use...in other words, it backfired. Go to the store and there's a metal screw that drills the hole and then secures...I drilled through a 1/8 steel truck frame with it to secure a brake line. Did it deserve a patent, which it had? Absolutely.

Patents are published. You have notice. Infringe, you pay. It's really quite simple. A lot simpler if you search and license ahead of time, though.

Who are you to judge what is commercially viable or even laughable? All of what you listed are innovative and are inventions. Someone paid $20,000 to register them as an exclusive idea for 17 years because they thought it was viable and of value to someone. If you choose to make a product based on these, you license it from the guy with the original idea...what is wrong with that?

Sorry - patent attorneys are some of the most brilliant engineers I know. Something you have worked on for a year gets fully understood and positioned to protect you by these guys. if your colleague went into patent law, he wouldn't last very long among his more competent peers.

You don't get it. A patent lasts 17 years. If you are ahead of your time, you are protected for that period. Your notion of 5 years is asinine. As is your notion of it having to be produced. It's an invention, not a product development. there is no such thing as a "mock" or "nuisance" patent. again, you seem clueless as to the level of detail and proof of novelty of an invention that is required to have a patent issue. You have complete disrespect for IP, which is at the core of the patent issue in places like India and China. Are you even in the USA and a citizen to tell it what to do?

Patents are published. Companies gamble in their failure to license and deserve to get sued if they don't.

That IS half the point of a patent...product protectionism. You don't like it, license it or IMPROVE it, which is the second point of the patent system. Whiner.
