OK Seriously

This whole patent thing has gone way WAY out of porportion lately. It seems there needs to be a major gap in the patenting process that needs to be closed up to keep upstarts from hanging onto an idea drawn on a napkin in the hopes they can sue Apple or whoever when they come up with the same idea all on their own.

There are entire companies which do nothing but make up stuff to patent and then sit on them until someone tries to use a similar idea, and then sue for patent infringement.

There really needs to be some kind of rule to prevent this, something which says that if patent something, you have x number of years to try to use it otherwise you lose the patent.

It is not at all difficult to come up with new ideas, but if all you have is an idea, with no working prototype and no viable plan to monetize the concept, that doesn't count for anything.
