As the recent BlackBerry case focused the world's eyes on the arcane field of patents, I was reminded of the 1999 "one click" case, which caused so many to condemn the U.S. patent system. At that time, critics called the system "broken" and a "disincentive to innovation." Now, the system is under attack again, merely because our Blackberries were threatened. The Wall Street Journal jumped onto this bandwagon blaming unscrupulous lawyers and their clients for conspiring to "hijack" the U.S. patent system.
