Comment Re:there is no such thing as ... Defensive patenti (Score 1) 363

There are also companies which specialise in defensive publication. Publication in journals is also used for this purpose.

Tell me these companies are doing this out of the goodness of their hearts to ensure the patent is not monopolistically exploited...

Probably not, eh? So defensive patents are anti-innovation, they are a cost on the community.
