"Your argument requires universal incompetence by litigators and/or decision-makers."

Incompetent and or comprimised. Yes.




So basically you think the entire patent system is a giant conspiracy?


No. Cooperation between individual entities is not required. All that is required is that a certain critical mass of the people involved be too incompetant to understand the math, too corrupt to care, or just malicious.

Seeing as we're talking about lawyers and politicians here, I don't think this is all to stunning.


Ah, if you're talking about politicians that's a completely different issue - then you have a good point, because changing the law requires getting a majority of legislators to vote in favor of reform. I'm talking strictly about litigation.
