+ - Famous Judge calls U.S. patent system "dysfunctional"->

Submitted by AC-x
AC-x writes: Famous U.S. Circuit Judge Richard Posner calls patent system "dysfunctional", wants to have the trial between Apple and Google-owned Motorola Mobility over smartphone patents dismissed with prejudice because "it was apparent that neither side could show they had been harmed by the other’s patent infringement".

His involvement and his anti-patent blog posts could prove to be a watershed moment for a U.S. patent system that is regarded as spiralling out of control.
