Good article on how patents might be hurting innovation (here).

The PTO is "planning to hire 100 more examiners" to help alleviate the backlog? Why must there be so much planning, as opposed to doing? Do the application fees not adequately recoup the PTO's personnel expenses? Even if they are inadequate, this is the federal gov't we're talking about--they seem to have an endless supply of money when its purpose is military (or one of George's other "pet projects").
