"The case became a rallying point for critics who argue the U.S. patent system is riddled with abuse from small businesses that sue established companies to enforce patents for ideas that have never been developed into products."
Well, if those big businesses would just license the patents from the small firm, there would be no lawsuits. It does not matter if it is developed into a current product. Sometimes it is almost impossible to get funding to get a product to market place and big businesses are those holding that process down. Share the wealth you greedy bastards.

The property in question here, as in many patent suits, is the idea. The idea does not necessarily have to be a developed product to be protected property.

I very much agree with you. Also, smaller companies need to use the patent system to keep larger companies from stealing their ideas. It takes a smaller task force longer time to create final products from those ideas.
