After reading the headline, I was looking forward to reading an article about LHC scientists have been transformed into werewolves...
I think the time of the patent, software license, copyright, software NDA or other intellectual property should relate to it's "impact".
eg. Swipe to unlock. Length: About 10 secs. Hoverboard. Length: 10 years.
I would have suggested relating it to the cost of discovery, but there's some things that would not have cost much, but the impact would be huge. I'm sick of these "obvious" patents being awarded to companies, but make them last only a short period might reduce the companies from submitting silly patents.
Ship each Samsung Tab 10.1 with a case that surrounds the unit and rename it 10.2...
Wait a minute, can you get sued for copying someone else's solution to a dumb issue?
Yes, that's what I meant. Not bad, one error out of what I swyped
For the past 3 years, I've been getting emails from another Citibank customer of the same name as me on my gmail account. First it started with "offers" but has escalated to PDF account statements.
Despite all attempts to stop this "spam", they are unable to fix the issue because "I'm not the owner of the account".
So, they happilly let customers set email addresses without verification. And continue the sending of personal information despite being told otherwise.
Time to close my account. This was the final straw.
