Good, Microsoft needs to appeal this, Alcatel and Lucent are out of hand with this. For once, I back Microsoft in the courtroom.

I totally agree, litigation and lawsuits in the united states are getting out of hand. Blame the lawyers. But another problem is copyright, trademark, and patent law. Those laws and guideline are far too broad and nondescript. Can you believe that some guy was able to patent an off the shelf laser pointer (he didn't even build or design) as a cat toy. What about the company that had filed a conceptual patent in regards to selling goods online. They basically detailed a mail order catalog on a computer screen; name goes here, address here, method of payment here. Exactly what has been done through the Sears and Hudson Bay catalogs for almost 200 years. But that company then went around and sued small mom and pop shops who sold goods online. "You're selling stuff on the internet, just like our vague conceptual patent. We're gonna sue you!" But never would they approach the likes of Amazon.com, who just happens to have a great deal on a twelve pack of attorneys for $1999.99 plus shipping.

Someone has to put a stop to the litigious life style of the United States before they sue the entire world out of existence. Or maybe we could put a limit on the number of lawyers allowed in the world.
