Yes, I call it the epoxy patent (as in potting).

A friend that has been through a patent dispute tell me filing for a patent is just an invitation to spend a half-million in Federal court. He just keeps trade secrets now and moves faster than his competition.

Here's the pseudo-code for patent infringement transactions for semi industry. If(Somebody sue you) publicly deny infringement; If (you have similar patents) Counter sue the guy; else Buy similar patents from Trolls And counter sue the guy; end Wait (until the guy turn up for negotiations) Settle out of court. & kickout the lawyers. Hug each other & do cross licensing deal END Exception --------- If(person suing=(university+ a crazy jury ard) suckup immediately throw and few $$ for univ research grant run for life; Else get ready with 1.2B$ for 2 silly patents. END
