Patents vs. Free Market

Abstract:
Chris Phoenix: Yesterday I posted about sharing information -- how it can be a self-interested thing to do, even if the information is valuable, and even if most people don't share theirs back.

Meanwhile, back in patent-land, patent experts are saying that it's not worth getting a patent these days for anything less than a million-dollar idea -- because that's how much it costs to defend one. That's also how much it costs to fight a fraudulent patent -- which are being issued in droves.
