Major news aggregators and discussion sites agree - US patent law, and software-related patents in particular, are out of control: a major computer company patented rounded corners; a retailer patented clicking once; and it's not worth developing a product because you'll get immediately get sued into oblivion by some troll. Find out why all these are wrong, as we talk about the popular myths and fallacies, why patents do spur innovation, and how you can use patent law to increase the value of your gaming company. Of course, patent law is not perfect, and we'll also discuss why the current arguments for reform don't work and what arguments might.
