Ah while we're fixing the patent laws, let's make it illegal to threaten another company's customers with lawsuits for patent damages without specifying the exact patents. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if there are enough laws against that already. It probably falls under monopoly abuse. If only government lawyers acted without the 5 year delay.
