"If ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise". The US system is slightly stupid in its application of 'innocent infringement', but it's the lawyers who advise you not to read patents, so as to avoid triple damages, who are really crazy. It's a bit like advising drivers to drive blindfold, to avoid charges of deliberate manslaughter.
