US dominates net-security patents, China, Canada and Oz on the advance


Re: And how many...

probably can't patent something that is already out there either.

I've had quite a few patents[1] granted. They involve innovative solutions such as "using data-reordering instructions to re-order data" and "using the Count Leading Zeroes instruction to count leading zeroes". These are all current and available for use by my previous employer as a stick with which to beat competitors...


[1] All of my patents are utterly useless. All of them. But I was young, and didn't know any better - I got paid quite a bit of cash for each filing, and more for each granting.
