The problem with software patents has been well discussed. But I had thought that in other areas the patent system was working (at least marginally) alright. Now I just read this news item about a Sony patent that just based on an idea—nothing was actually created, researched, or produced! It was merely a thought inside someone’s head!

How can they get a patent like this? What is wrong with our patent system?
