What's interesting is how a US granted or China granted patent can go international w/o international support? Don't get me wrong. I agree with 1-for-all. However, I see an international patent organization shall be established. Before so, the patent process shall be revised. For example, a patent of a cube like smartphone w/o dimension shall not be granted, shan't it?

Good point! You get what you pay for. Still, think of all of the issues a smart examiner might raise on each patent. I don't think the government wants a hard look at these things. Face it, they are mostly vehicles for lawyers to make money, not companies or engineers. Just a thought.
